Question on possible Gaming Linux Distributions

Hi, new here.

Basically, I've been a heavy windows user (windows xp), and the only thing that has really kept me from ever using Linux is gaming. What would you guys think is the best for heavy gaming for games like Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Half-Life 2 (mainly Orange Box), Hellgate: London, and Crysis?

My specs:

AMD64 3400+ socket 754
2GB DDR PC3200 ram
200GB 5400 RPM hard drive

Ah, sorry, didn't know about that thread. Close this thread, as I have posted on the Distro thread.
