    Welcome to the forums!

    I'm not sure that there really is a best distro for gamers, but you can check out a Linux Games listing here:

    Linux Gamers' Game List

    More info here:

    Linux Gamers' FAQ

    Some games won't run on Linux but you might be able to run them under WINE or Cedega. Otherwise, you can setup a dual-boot system if you wish to run both Linux and Windows.

    Check the link in my signature for lots of good information on getting started with Linux.

    Hope it all works out well for you.

    Hello and Welcome.
    You might want to check out this Distro, made just for gaming. But it is a LiveCD/DVD so that means it's probably not a good idea to install it to the HD. It seems to have most of the major games for Linux pre-installed. I might have to download this myself just to check it out.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
