Got me some Shiny New Hardware... now what?
Hi folks.
I just thought I'd throw out a line and see if anyone has any input on which distro might support the hardware I just bought. I had everything running just find using Mandrake 10, but now that I'm turning that box into a Myth TV box, and have new hardware, I need to rebuild a linux dual boot. Here are the specs. If you have info and feel so inclined, please let me know if you've had any luck with a distro/hardware combo

The MB is nice, it's a 939 socket with built in G-bit Lan (chipset:Vitesse VSC8201 Gigabit Phy and Marvell 88E8001 Gigabit PCI )

(I read on this site, that this works great. ANyone want to add to that?)

AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice

Video card:
JATON Video-PX7800GT Geforce 7800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16

Sound card:
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350 8 (7.1) Channels PCI Interface Sound Card

Thanks for any input!

With that hardware my vote is in Gentoo, cause with Gentoo you will be able to best modify your kernel and package system to be optimized for your setup.
