Question Mandrake 9.0 or RH 8.0 for a Linux Noob??

Hello all, I have a quick question, I know everyone has their favorite Distro and all but I'm wondering. For a new Linux user. Which Distro is best Mandrake 9.0 or RH 8.0? I have D/L and burned both of them I'm just wondering which one is best for me and my hardware?

I'd like to totally get away from Windows (Except in rare cases where I can't get a game to emulate with Wine) So I'd like your opinions please.

Hardware is...
PIII 933 (OC 1.015GHz)
512 Megs Ram
WD 30 gig ATA100 Harddrive (Windows XP drive)
Maxtor 40 gig ATA 133 Harddrive (Linux Drive)
10x12x24 CDR/RW Drive
Nvidia GeForce4 Ti4200
Creative Audigy Xgamer
Creative DxR3 DVD player with PCI decoder
3Com 3C90x NIC (Verizon DSL conection)

Thanks again for your opinions, I look forward to reading them.

P.S. I'm sorry if this is not the right topic for this message board, but I have read other forums and this one seem to be the most open to new Linux users.
