HI all so here is my system specs before virtual box and Ubuntu 12.10 i had a question going off my system specs how much video ram and how much memory and processor cores can i safely give Ubuntu without slowing down windows behind it. system specs are as followed.
I have a Alienware X51 with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
I have 2 video cards as this is a Optimus machine no its not a laptop its a small form factor PC my in built video card is a Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 <---- i don't use this never have. I use the dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 555 1 GB video card. and I have 8 GIGS ram.
Please let me know how much stuff i can safely give my virtual machine without compromising my windows 7 performance thanks all.
