All software can have bugs, errors and viruses, however Linux based system tend to have less bug and errors and little risk from viruses. One thing that you may have issues converting to is the fact that windows based software such as games and applications cannot be installed on non-Windows operating systems, in addition the blue-ray library is currently not complete to the point where it can play all disks.

This information is not meant to scare you, but to give you realistic expectations.

Your hardware is newer and fulfills the requirements of all x86/32-bit and x86_64/64-bit Linux based operating systems. For a beginner We generally recommend Ubuntu, Fedora or Zorin. As a gamer, Ubuntu may be the best option since they are trying hard to get commercial software available and valve is working on a steam game client for Ubuntu.
