Which Distro to use

I am new to Linux but i know how it works, but I'm not sure which distro I should use.
It is either: -Ultimate Edition 4.9
-Voyager 16.06
-Manjaro 16.06
Which one should I use. I do want it to be Ubuntu or Arch.

Do you have enough RAM for (e.g:) VirtualBox or you can burn a bunch and try them live? Start at the top of "popularity" and work your way down (free) keeping in mind, back up your irreplaceables as always!

First link in my signature for more links, have fun!
