Have you installed the NVidia drivers as the nouveau ones may struggle as they are still relatively new. You install the Nvidia drivers using the hardware drivers utility."I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.

Didn't help. I tried the NVIDIA stock drivers, the drivers Linux found, and the post release drivers found under the additional drivers menu. the lag does not go away on Linux. My Windows side of the computer has no lag fullscreen.
Linux, mint or Ubuntu, is just faster in every aspect i don't want to switch back to windows if i want full screen videos.
Anyone else has any ideas?
