Hi , I am new on linux and I would like to know which distro is best for gaming

Well my pc specs are : Intel i5 cpu / 4gb ram / amd  gpu ati radeon 6600 series

I read that x64 system and amd gpu have problems ..so I would like to know which is the most compatible distro for me

I play games like LoL , csgo /dota (steam) , and maybe cod

Any idea ? Thx for your time

It doesn't matter. It just depends on your expertise. I would recommend just using Kubuntu or Mint, and installing the proprietary drivers will be your best start.

I don't know where heard that. That is misguided.

I highly recommend either Kubuntu 14.04 64-bit or Mint 64-bit, and reading the documentation for that OS. Your question is quite broad, and is hard to give a solid answer, but Linux is Linux (for the most part). I just depends on your expertise. Stick with one of the ones that I mentioned, and read their docs, and you will be fine. 

Welcome to Linux. :)

I would NEVER recommend Arch to someone just coming to Linux. That is far too advanced for the average user, and tends to scare people away. hahahaha. I mean, to each his/her own, but Arch is not a beginner's OS in any way, shape, or form.

there is no best distro for gaming imo.. it comes down to what you personaly like.

try top10 distros from distrowatch in vbox and check what you like the most, then install it to real system and let it roll..

 

arch is too advanced for beginners but theres manjaro, evolution and bridge linux to make it easy to install..

arch is best when you want to learn linux and see whats under the hood and put the pieces in you really need. no other bloat is installed.

Well, there are different package managers, different names for packages, different methods of starting and stopping services, different release cycles, etc.. Nevertheless, Linux is Linux (for the most part). Mint and the *buntus are probably the easiest to start using right away, but none are really better than the others.
