    12.04 will be supported for much longer period as compared to 12.10. You can get more differences here:

    If you can share your hardware and system configuration then it'll be easy to help you. I personally suggest Ubuntu 12.04 because it is LTS and will be supported by Canonical till 2017

    Also while googling I found this link. Thought it might be interesting to you.

    Go with 12.04. Although 12.10 will also perform great on your machine but I read somewhere that 12.10 has some issues with ATI graphic card drivers.

    and Welcome to Ubuntu

    i think it will depend on your needs. If you are considering ubuntu for testing purposes, you should do with 12.10 but if you are thinking long-term, 12.04 is the best as they provide a five year maintainance..............
