What's a good Linux distro to start with?
I've fucked around with Ubuntu before when I was younger, and it was pretty neat, but it couldn't run silverlight or steam at the time so I gave up on it.
Any good Linux 101 sites or books?

Intended for users of all levels, including absolute beginners.

There are four ways to try Linux, you can:

1) Install a Linux OS on a VM (Virtual Machine/VirtualBox) for "safety purposes"
2) Use the Live ISO directly without installing anything, that way, you can get a "full Linux experience".
3) Dual-boot Linux with Windows/Mac (recommended if you want to learn more about Linux)
4) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with Linux (not recommended)

Before asking, please search for answers to your questions in resources.

Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly Linux Thread.

just get the dt770 instead. so much cheaper for the same build and sound as dt880.

you got an amp though?
contact the seller if there's anything wrong with the headphones, often they'll just resell it because they upgrade or don't like the sound and it's a cheap buy, but maybe there's semen on the headband or one of the cups has rattling inside it

Obviously there are a lot of Linux distros like mint, arch, fedora etc, but is there just plain, raw Linux that can be run? If so where can one get it? And if I can, why would I want to?

There are two common roots: RedHat-based and Debian-based. They're both fair choices and have their advantages and disadvantages. Centos/Redhat/Fedora support more enterprise packages whereas debian distros support more consumer stuff.

>actual water flow over the VRMs

That alone is worth it as GCN is a thirsty beast of an architecture and cooling the power delivery is often a weakness of many coolers, including AMD's own fury x cooler.

I still think AMD should've made the shroud slightly bigger, put in a full cover block asnd then slapped a 240mm rad on the thing, but cost and people screaming about needing a 240mm rad on their stock clocked cpus would make it end...poorly.

Wouldn't recommend overclocking a 750Ti at all. Best way to test for coil whine is to just get close while its running. Take off your side panel, if the whine is high pitched enough and you're not completely deaf, you should be able to pin point the sound.
As for Over clocking, the only way to see if it will work is to do the over-clock and benchmark it. Try Firestrike and Unigene Heaven. If you're getting artifacting, bring your clocks back down. If not, then you're all good. If you crash, good luck reseting the BIOS.

I want to generally just dick around with graphics shit and hopefully write my own raycasting

what's the best approach to doing this? On the face of it I kind of just want to do everything onto a bitmap buffer and send that to opengl to draw, rather than doing it properly with hardware acceleration and shit. I don't really care about speed, I just want to learn something and have fun
