Twin monitor new build

I have twin 1920X1080 monitors and want a to build a simple work pc capable of using both displays - emails on one, maps on the other. No games/video editing etc.
Will something like a G2020 CPU be powerful enough? Will the HD4000 graphics be good enough or do I need a separate card?

    It works flawlessy. I have a macbook pro with Intel HD 4000 and it works really well with 2 monitors.
  2. The g2020 does not have the hd 4000. It is just called "hd graphics" with specs more similar to the hd 2500. But you are still fine, it could run on much weaker gpus.

    Thanks. That is just what I need to know. I didn't want to build something not up to the job; then again I didn't want to overspend just to be sure. Thank you.

    Oh. I didn't know that. Do you think that almost any of the Pentium Ivy bridge CPU's should be enough for my needs? I would prefer to err on the side of spending a little more rather than buying twice. :)

    Yes it would work, but no PCI-e gen 3

    You'd be fine with any IB cpu.
