I would like to try some OS for Raspberry on my computer, without formatting an SD card.
(For example: Raspbian)

I haven't yet tried using Qemu. But it's one way for running things like this. Link: http://qemu.weilnetz.de/
I suggest you should play with Arch instead of Raspbian. It's fun & fast to use :)
