Linux Gaming Adventures

Backstory: I wanted to get back into "serious" Gaming, I haven't played any other games (other than Minecraft) since I switched to Arch Linux.
So, I bought a GTX 1050 Ti, installed nVidia drivers, opened my PC and inserted the card into the slot.
I opened my terminal and installed Lutris - selected Overwatch, followed the instructions, waited a while for it to download then.

BANG

It just worked

I was expecting to have to mess with it for a while to get it to work but I didn't need to.
That's all for now, I might update this article in the future if I learn anything new.

Specs (Overwatch, I got smooth gameplay @ Medium 720p60):

CPU: Intel i5-4430
GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1050Ti
