I am planning to build my first desktop PC. I plan to run Ubuntu 12.04 with a Virtualbox VM having XP as its OS. My apps will consist of photo processing (Darktable, Gimp), video processing (Kino, Openshot), audio processing (Audacity), desktop publishing (Scribus), and household financial, graphics, and office applications. I have used PcPartPicker to come up with an initial configuration. Does anyone see any problems with this configuration related to Ubuntu and apps I want to run or have any suggestions for changing things? Here's my build setup:
I listed this on Reddit, but no one commented on whether anything in this configuration might cause problems under Ubuntu. I presume the only two pieces that are of concern with respect to the list are the mother board and the video card. Any comments will be appreciated.
