Mandrake vs Suse for gaming


Greetings peeps.

I'm a recent convert to Linux currently running redhat 9, whilst I'm getting on ok with redhat, there's still a problem... Windows is still on my pc.

I just use windows to play games (converted to Linux as I prefer it for web developing) I find Mandrake & Suse more appealing than redhat but which of the two handles games better?

my system
P4 2.53
1Gb RAM
Geforce 4 TI4800 128mb

typical games played
dark age of camelot
star wars galaxies
planetside
GTA3

never tried Suse
but with an nvidia card games like ut and ut2003 are better on linux than on windows
ie: higher frame rate

i've currently got or had installed on mandrake 9.1
ut, ut2003, quake3, soldier of fortune demo, descent3 demo (looks GORGEOUS)
aleph one, steel panthers:world at war, vendetta
and the usual 50 or 60 free games that come with...
