Your desktop environment will have little affect on your Gaming Experience.

The biggest differences will come from package versions between Distros and how they are packaged and distributed.

AMD cards can benefit from newer packages, the rest mostly comes down to preference.

 

I would expect your experience to be similar across Ubuntu and Ubuntu Mate.

The difference are purely cosmetic. If you really wanted to split hairs, MATE may or may not have slightly lower resource consumption than GNOME but not enough to make any difference in performance.

I personally do not care for MATE, but as the others said it will make little difference. Lubuntu and Kubuntu are also great flavors if you want a more windows-y desktop.

There shouldn't be any difference in the end. The 'Additional Drivers - Proprietary' option would be easiest.

It's recommended to use NVIDIA Drivers provided by your distribution rather than the NVIDIA install script. This helps ensure everything is compatible and dependencies are satisfied. It's also overall a much better installation experience.

 

Your comparing Ubuntu to Ubuntu however. If something is missing for Ubuntu Mate that you use on Ubuntu Base, grab it from the software store / repository, however most utilities are usually pre-installed across Ubuntu Flavors. The only thing that will change is your Desktop Environment and any Mate Applications will probably replace the default Ubuntu applications if there is a equivalent built for that Desktop Environment, such as the file manager.
