(Short answer) Best tool for the job: Buy an xbox.
(Longer answer) You really need to do a bit of research here I think, windows games can sometimes be forced to work under an emulator, and wireless drivers is too deep an issue to be questioned like that, really; try a few, see if your wireless works in them.

Fedora or Debian may be. For Windows game you need either cedega wine or just plain wine from winehq.org.
