Reason: Adding [code] tags. They retain some formatting that makes your output easier to read.

What kind of games do you play? Native Linux games or Windows games.

Run Driver Manager and install the nvidia driver (don't chooser the server ones) instead of nouveau. Then learn how to use prime to play games with the nvidia card instead of the AMD Ryzen's Vega integrated GPU. ... idia-prime
