I'm planning my first computer build. Because I love programming I decided to go with linux for a unix like operating system. I've spent hours reading about components. My first plans for a system build was a gaming rig and I started to like the company gigabyte. The motherboard I'm planning on using for this linux build is the gigabyte GA-H170-HD3.
My question is will it work with linux? I started hesitating when I looked for linux drivers for the motherboard, but didn't find any. I went around the internet for a bit and saw a person talk about drivers got programmed into the linux kernel and ubuntu kernel directly. Is this true? Is "linux compatibility" nothing really to worry about? Or if it is, where should I look for linux compatible components?
Many questions that needs to be answered. Please explain for me, I really do want to know what I should do to succeed with this build.
PS. I'm sorry if the english isn't the best, it's my second language,
