Thanks for the answer!
I play online single player games, but some have online modes that i never used.
Yeah, I read about the AMD drivers being open source, I'm not planning on changing my card anytime soon (it still works perfectly fine for most games on low or medium settings) so I'll have to deal with nvidia for now
I'll search how to do that then
Never used Pop OS, only Ubuntu (years ago) and Mint, is it better for gaming?
Basically Ubuntu, Pop OS, and Mint are the same operating systems underneath the default Desktop Environment and stuff. It is just that Pop OS comes with the latest drivers out of the box. Mint and Ubuntu are equally capable of gaming. All you need to do is get the latest drivers, steam, and lutris and you will be all set. The lutris wiki contains excellent directions on how to get Ubuntu/Mint set up for gaming: https://github.com/lutris/docs/blob/master/InstallingDrivers.md . Also https://christitus.com/ultimate-linux-gaming-guide/ is good for tweaking. Add in Mangohud and you have yourself a fully capable gaming setup with Linux Mint.
Mint can be a great setup for gaming as long as the games you want to play work. Have a look at : https://www.protondb.com/ and https://lutris.net/ for gaming compatibility lists. If most of your games work in Linux, it will work in Linux Mint.
