Because you downloaded the graphic version of the iso (the Live-CD), you should select Ubuntu 12.04 Desktop in the dropdown menu.

The Desktop is a Live desktop system and is almost certainly what you want. If your hardware is working you can install from the live CD, and this is what most people do.

The Alternate CD is a text based CD for installation only. It has a few more options then the desktop CD (LUKS, LVM).

The end installed system is the same.
