Re: Choosing a Distro
I would suggest Fedora but there is one thing that your going to have a problem with it(although this is going to be the issue with any distros) closed source software such as the nvidia driver, flash, realplayer, acroread, and many games are not in the distros software library. You will have to add different servers to get them or just download them from the website(meaning there not going to be updated automatically). Personally I use gentoo which does not have this problem but that distro requires alot of Linux knowlege.
AMD64 X2 4400, ASUS A8N-SLI Preimium, eVGA nvidia 7800 GT, OCZ Platinum EL-PC3200 2-3-2-5 2gig 200gig WD SATA150, SB Audigy 2 Platinum, Pioneer 108, Dell 2405W, all running on Gentoo Linux ~amd64.
