So if I do get a PC which ones would you recommend and idk about Linux cuz I never had one myself but I could certainly give it a try
Honestly for most people Linux isn't actually any better than Windows. I guess it's slightly better now, because it's more like, W7, rather than the slightly more garbage W10 that's current. But it's a marginal difference, and unless you
get down into the nuts and bolts of it, you aren't going to get significantly improved performance out of it.
Anyway, regarding PCs - I've used Lenovos for quite a few years now, and they've served me very well. The only caveat is their warranty, mainly because their repairs centre is based in Germany I think, so if you have to claim something you'll have to say goodbye for at least a week. While they've slightly been on a downturn the last couple years (the 500 series in particular is quite poor now, which is a shame as it was the one I defaulted to using previously) they are on the whole pretty good. I've heard good things about Asus otherwise, and HP are apparently now on the up and up, so those are probably worth considering.
If you're only going to be gaming casually, but want the benefit of portability and tablet like use, I'd seriously suggest considering a Microsoft Surface. It runs most typical "low level" PC games (such as League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, I imagine DoW and...probably, the Sims, although 3 I hear is somewhat poorly optimized on the whole so, your mileage may vary), and is quick enough otherwise, but has the benefit of being very compact and light (still with a reasonable screensize, although it's not a behemoth) and having the "tablet mode" which is actually a lot nicer than I thought it was. Unlike iPads and the like, it is functionally a PC - it's the same W10 as you'd have on a traditional laptop, but that is on a portable tablet like device. It's probably worth picking up a wireless (or wired, if you really wanted) mouse for gaming and/or external HDD just to carry your files you don't use much on there, but I'd suggest those even for a more typical laptop (or even a desktop).
