basically I think your card's drivers should play with kernel, not with distro. so it's probably just your own wishes that make the decicion between different distributions..the driver(s), if they exist and work, should work with almost all the distributions (I don't know about BSDs since they aren't just the same as "linux" as it's generally understood).

you may try something different, if you just wish - I'd recommend you try out something nice, like Arch for example (it _does_ need some skills to install, however), or anything.
