What host OS to install & graphics card
« on: July 16, 2018, 02:57:37 pm »
Greetings all, so I've acquired a old Dell Optiplex, i7 2600 with 32GB RAM.

My questions are: What should I install as the host OS as I'm planning to run several distros in VM?

Also graphics wise, was looking at the ASUS GT710 or should the onboard fine?

Any OS that takes your fancy on that beast :) .. personally I'd say PeppermintOS, but then I would, I help create it.

As far as the graphics card goes .. depends on what youu're planning on doing ? .. if it doesn't include gaming I'd say the onboard will do.
