If you only have a video card, it sounds like you need to build everything else from scratch then? Also, keep in mind that linux has a much more limited selection of games than windows does.

Console peasants don't know what they are missing out on. There is simply no reason albeit cost (which is debatable) that one should not be playing on PC.

Get a core i7 4770k cpu, a Z87 motherboard, a Hyper 212Evo CPU cooler, SeaSonic X650 power supply, 2x8GB of Corsair or G.Skill DDR3 memory(1.5v or less), a 128GB SSD, a 2TB 7200RPM harddrive, and then assemble it.
