Cool What distro do you suggest?

I have HP Pavilion dv5000ea laptop with:

AMD Turion64 @ 1800mHz
512 RAM
ATI Radeon xpress 200M

So what distro do you guys suggest? What distro gives good or even fair support for ATI GFX? I've tried SUSE 10.0 and now im trying to find a better distro. I have some experience with Linux but not that much that I could install Gentoo.
