Distro that allows use of IGPU and AMD graphics card for dual monitor
 
I've used linux before on my laptops but I'm looking to install it on my desktop pc.

Spec:
I5 3570K
AMD 7850
8GB RAM
250GB hard drive partition

However I'm using a dual monitor setup at the minute in windows using the vga ports on both the graphics card and the mother board to run the screens. However I've tried manjaro and it won't seem to support running both the amd and intel graphics drivers at the same time. Is there any distro that will let me do this easily?

Thanks

Ok, I think that Linux Mint 13 works pretty well for dual screen setups if you want to downgrade a bit. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS works ok too, but from what I've found, Mint 13 is superior. Note that Mint 14 doesn't work as well. Make certain you get Linux Mint 13 "Maya", not 14 Nadia. I'm new to Linux, so I'm not 100% sure.:D Still, try LM 13. See if it works...
