    And who might point us to a solid article on optimizing Ubuntu graphics?

    Just have to say this, don't buy anything with Nvidia's Optimus, it doesn't work with anything but Windows 7. Performance with bumblebee is awful.

    You can check Ubuntu Certified hardware. There are a lot of desktops. Maybe you'll get some ideas from those configurations: http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/...tegory=Desktop

    I've always used NVidia cards as they have worked better that ATI ones. Always seem to have driver issues with ATI. But then that maybe just me.
    Running 12.4 on all PC's in the house.
    Finally ditched Windows, also using Ubuntu at work now!
    Uber respect to the Ubuntu team.

    Sharing my experience.
    My PC has integrated SIS video chip. That worked ok at lower resolution and non standard aspect ratios, however, I was never able to configure 1920 x 1080 (16:9) native resolution to match my HP monitor.

    I then upgraded my machine with Nvidia geforce 210 chip but ubuntu didn't even boot properly with that. I kept having even more issues with display.

    Returned Nvidia and got a card with ATI HD5450 chip and I am very happy with ATI. I did not have to manually configure anything. Ubuntu now runs perfectly on native resolution and aspect ratio. Even windows vista works much faster now with add on ATI graphics chip.

    Based on my experience ATI runs best on Ubuntu 12.04.
