Mint has been the most popular for years. Only recently fell down a little bit. Doesn't matter I want to try it but thank you for the suggestion.

Pop! OS is the distro I'd recommend for newbies tbh.

Mint had a bit of a farce recently, their website got compromised and the download got replaced with malware. Though that's not why I'd recommend against mint, it's again the same as with Manjaro - they've got their own repos and the said repos aren't as good as the "parent distro" has. In Mint's case the parent distro is Ubuntu, though.


And I am in no way recommending Arch for newbies, but Manjaro sits in an awkward spot IMO. Too slow to be considered a cutting edge distro, but doesn't enjoy the stability of slower distros either.

Thank you for the suggestion. I actually really like the look of that. If I end up not liking Mint much I'll definitely try that next.

So I am now on my 3rd Radeon 7, The first just crashed when GPU usage went higher than 50%, With the 2nd one the junction temp reached 110'c, Which is horrendously easy to do, And any game crashed, Followed by a black screen for 10 seconds followed by a driver recovery, And now this one does the same thing.

From the looks of it the Radeon 7 is an extremely rushed product and the driver team have absolutely no clue what they are doing with the card.

Going to send it back, Get a new replacement and sell it at a little bit of a loss then go back to Nvidia for the time being until AMD sort themselves out.

I have never in my lifetime known someone to have so much hardware problems as you. Are you OCing everything in a sauna room?

That's funny, I only bought one, and I can overclock the bejesus out of it with no crashing at all. Maybe your PSU is getting flaky?

Lolz XD the really weird thing is I can run Valley at 4K max settings 8xMSAA for hours on end no problem at 100% GPU usage and junction temp gets to 110'c and core temp to 77'c but it stays stable, Same thing with Firestrike, Heaven etc... Very weird case.

No I've tested a 295X2 which is 1 power hungry card and also a 2080 Ti, Both no problems.

r7 needs water. End of, really. It's the same deal with my 64. If I don't set the fans to 100% it will eventually crash. Well, unless I underclock it a bit but where's the fun in that?

Oh yeah, I should have mentioned that mine is underwater. That is one card I could NOT live with on air. No damn way.

So I tried using Linux Mint as my first experiment into using Ubuntu based OS's. Didn't really like it and I couldn't get over the UI.

Switched to Zorin 12.4 and it's way better. More like Windows but that's not a bad thing. The UI is far better and actually simple things are easy to do. Can't wait to test Zorin 15. In beta but my gawd it looks good. Only negative I can see is they are changing the default browser from Chromium to FF. So I'll have to definitely switch that back. FF is awful in my experience.
