I have a GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard and have previously tried ubuntu 13.04 and discovered that my usb ports didn't work, so i had to swap my keyboard and mouse to set it up but usb still didn't work and the system was unstable and slow so i gave up.
I want to know what distro i should use and that is best for a person with limited Linux knowledge and would like to run wine.
Aslo should i run a virtual box to see if i like linux more and/or permanently use it?
...Running windows 8 64 bit...
16 gb ram
GTX 650ti 2gb
5TB of assorted hard drives (no SSDs sadly)
(yeah i know weird right)
