I'm about to buy a new desktop. I would like to be able to use two monitors. I am not sure what features will be most important here. I will probably run Ubunbtu, although I haven't decided (I might try Arch). The computer will mostly be for simple tasks: email, writing, though some occasionally more strenuous task (editing photos, some R analysis...)
- I believe I will need two distinct outputs (One VGA, one HDMI, probably)
- Is a separate graphics card important, or will the inbuilt graphics manage it?
- How much RAM should I be considering?
- Is the processor speed important?
