If you desire a stable distribution, use either Linux Mint or Pop!_OS. If you want to play games on your system Pop!_OS or Manjaro. If you want a light-weight desktop (which your system doesn't need but it's an option) either go Linux Mint or Peppermint.

Overall the only one I don't recommend is Manjaro, as it is unstable and will brick something you run eventually.

My biggest recommendations are Pop!_OS and Linux Mint. I have never used Peppermint but I also heard it is good.

Manjaro Gnome is very stable in my experience.

Actually I respectfully disagree. Other than the KDE version, Manjaro has been very stable in my experience, as long as you don't go crazy installing random stuff from the AUR. My preference is the Gnome version as it has a smooth interface like Ubuntu out of the box, but also has a layouts tool that quickly changes the desktop to look like Windows, Mac, or even tiling if that's your preference.

If you want something that's Ubuntu based, Feren OS is another good one to check out.

FerenOS is good, I know the developer and he is pretty chill

Totally agree with you. I moved from Fedora to Manjaro and it's been a great experience so far, totally stable, fast and it has the fastest package manager out there.
