Question Which distro for a High Tek Comp?

Gettin' ready to finish a 3.06g speedster, tryin to decide if Linux OS is the right choice (as I am completely IGNORANT about Linux) for a gaming computer.

If so, where can I find 'drivers' needed for my gear?

Which distro should I seek?

Can windows based games run under Linux?

I have been searching Linux sites but the articles seem a bit dated....please name a few that are current.

Much appriciated :-)


Disreguard this Post, Duh I just need to look at other threads.
