I'm researching hardware in order to build a new PC and I'd like to run linux as my main OS and just run windows in a VM. Do you think it'll be fast enough to run photoshop in a windows VM or will I still have to dual boot? Are the graphics supported by Ubuntu (both the Radeon card and the integrated chipset)?
My current plan is here as an amazon wish list.
- CPU - Intel i5 2500k
- MOBO - Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3
- Memory - Corsair 16GB (4x4GB) 1600MHz
- Graphics - Asus 1GB Radeon HD 6850 PCI-E 2
- SRT - Nocti mSATA 60GB SSD (just for the caching, I have another drive for main HDD)
