Need a live distro with a good hardware support and out-of-box nvidia proprietary


Hi,
I want to purchase a secondhand PC (Intel E8400/GeForce 9800GT)
and have a plan to make some simple tests. Thus I need a LiveCD (DVD)
distro. The main problem is of course the nvidia 9800 GT card. I've found
that Sabayon is shipped with Nvidia proprietary drivers. Maybe others distributions too. Any suggestions? Do you know perhaps such a distribution?

(The PC is aimed at W$ - mainly - I think that Linux will serve better for hardware tests).

The live PCLinuxOS cd's come with the nvidia proprietary drivers too.
