Default I May go Linux

I might stop useing windows and get Linux.

Why you might ask would a Windows fanboy switch to Linux?
Because I am tired of Windows forcing me to upgrade when a new version comes out(like Vista) i mean i will be upgrading any ways but i dont want to be upgrading on the whim of an OS.

The thing is I dont know where to start.

What version of Linux 64bit(needs to be free if it can) should I get

What do I need to get to run games (UT2004, FarCry, FEAR, Doom3, COD2, Starwars Battlefront 2 and so on) on Linux 64bit.

What do i need to run windows apps(needed becuase of NetZero software)

Also what kind of performance can i expect on Linux compaired to windows
DFI Lanparty CFX3200-DR Crossfire motherboard
Asus x1900xt
OCZ VX DDR400 2-2-2-5 @ DDR500 2-2-2-5
