Please post specs (CPU, RAM, HDD/SSD). Please run Speccy if you are still running Windows and post a snapshot, as this is an easy way to show us your computer's specifications.
Unfortunately I turned my computer off last night so i can't remote in to run Speccy sorry .
- CPU AMD FX 8150
- Motherboard MSI 990FXA-DG80
- Ram 16 GB G.Skill Sniper Series 2400 MHz
- Storage 500 GB Samsung 840 EVO/180 GB OCZ Vertex4/ 500 GB Hitachi HDP
- Video Card Nvidia GTX 980 TI
It may not matter, but i also have a GTX 980 TI and a g-sync monitor. I don't remember seeing anywhere if g-sync required windows or not. That may entirely just end my journey to Linux.
What do you do with this PC? Do you just surf the net, some email, watch a few movies or do you play games, and use virtual-machines?
A lot of gaming, some visualization for personal experimenting/training.
Do you want a distribution that's easy to configure or do you want something a little more challenging?
Probably something a bit more challenging. I've gotten bored of windows. I've used Linux before in school but that was a while back, and very limited.
Do you want a distribution for which there is a decent amount of help out there in terms of forum support and tutorials, or do you prefer to research and work things out for yourself?
This could go either way really. The initial setup would probably need quite a bit of support but once i get it running, self research is fine
Do you want a distribution that looks more like Windows or are you okay with a different look?
Doesn't really matter either.
Overall i'm just tired of windows, and want something new. No real rush for responses either, as it's probably not something i'm going to rush home after work to do.
Either way, i appreciate anyone and everyone's response to my request :D.
