Hello, i’m brand new to linux running an i9-9900k, gtx 1660ti, 32gb ram and I seem to have little to no good performance at all on linux, I just come from windows 10 and installed majaro-xfce 3 days ago on nonfree drivers.
So for the past 3 days or so I have tried everything from running CSGO with like 10fps and absolutely horrible performance even settings all the games settings to the lowest possible settings, simple task like moving windows around spike xorg to like %20, firefox takes up 60% + just by scrolling a simple text page, I even thought maybe it’s just firebox being trash so I found vimb which took just as must cpu on a single youtube page without me even touching the pc lol. I have no idea where to continue from here but I am afraid that if I keep using linux in the fashion it might destroy my hardware by overheating everything on extremely simple task… I have also tried a different window manager like awesomewm which was even worse and also destroyed my audio settings where I can not even use my mic anymore without sounding like im in a dumptruck…
I just have no idea where to go from here and need some guidance on how I can start getting my system with good specs to run at least a little decent with linux…

Alright, I got exactly what you did, I also updated my kernal to 5.10 and my nvidia drivers are at 460.32.03
Also, xorg seems to be shooting to like 30 - 40 % just on moving a window around and now it’s just stuttering lol…

Only kernals I had were 5.4 and 4.19
nvidia drivers where all installed.
giving up lol, spent 3 days doing nothing but trying to figure out why moving a window took up 30 to 40%cpu and why i couldn’t break more than 16 fps on something like csgo…
performance was just terrible so im going to try and a different distro like popos.
