Unhappy Searching for the right distro


I tried about 20 distro's but I still have not found one I like

I am looking for a desktop distro for home use. It should have good hardware support. I want to listen to music, play some games (like UT2k4 and Quake3) and also windows games through Wine. It would be nice if it had some innovative graphical experience (something like MacOS) allthough not nescessary. Security is not a really big issue allthough security at a Linspire level is not good enough. Opera would be really nice if included. I preffer a Root account instead of sudo. Being somewhat newbie friendly wouldn't hurt.

My hardware:
Amd Athlon XP 2800+ (x86)
Ati Radeon 9800pro
Creative 5.1 SoundBlaster Live! 24-bit value (the linux compatible one)
ASUS A7V8X motherboard
us keyboard
Dell optical mouse

Maybe SUSE after all? I really don't know where to look anymore...

Anyone here who can give me some advise on this? MyahOS whas the best distro for me so far...
