I use Linux a lot, and I've been trying to put Linux on my new build but I'm having loads of trouble for some reason with different linuxes.

My monitor is a korean monitor overclocked to 110Hz

I'm trying to dual boot Windows and Linux. So I put a CD of Linux Mint in and say boot from this. I was stuck with a black screen. So power button it and when I restarted I have lines everywhere on my screen. I go into Windows it's fine and I reset my refresh rate back to 60Hz(not sure if it matters)

I restart a couple times and I still have discoloration and artifacts on teh right side of my screen.

I have no idea why this happened. My video card is GTX780.

Anyone have any idea?

Add liquid cooling to your Korean monitor and overclock it to 230 MHz.

This is how Linux runs.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.
