I have had issue running SOME 3D games on KDE, such as GL-117. Once I went back to gnome, the game plays fine.

Just my 2 cents...

kde and gnome are both equally easy to use, i think.

I use fluxbox. Its not quite as easy as gnome or kde, but i found that i learned more by having to go through its minimalistic features.

I would say that there is very little to choose between KDE and Gnome. KDE is perhaps a little more of a resouce hog than Gnome, but only by a very slight margin. Personally I don't like either as a desktop environment, but I quite like some of the apps that come with them.
