    Help me chose a distro

    Hello everyone!
    I'm fairly new to Linux and currently searching for a distro that comes with a few pre installed games, and a nice 3D desktop. So far, no luck. can make a recommendation, please?

    I have only tired Ubuntu, it was too buggy for me, crashed and froze constantly and sometimes I got a non-responsive screen after trying to login. But, overall it looked really nice! However, I prefer to have stable, thoroughly tested software.

    It could be that you need the right video driver. This is what Im coming up with.

    Perhaps someone with nvidia driver experience will help you with this.

    Your hardware specs are similar, if not superior, to my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS box that runs with no significant problems.

    As others have mentioned 'screen freezes', etc does make me think of a NVIDEA driver issue.
