    Linux doesn't support Windows based programs but you can use Wine to run those in Linux. Some packages might not work properly in Wine. Try both, Wine and Cedega for playing games.
    Check Ubuntu Studio and Linux Mint for Multimedia support. You can install any/all packages in any distro though.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    It depends on your Machine's Hardware and linux distro you are going to install.

    If you have older machine then you should try lightweight distro. Check the link in my signature and check this thread too.

    Well ! Thats a pretty good machine and any distro including Sabayon should work like a breeze on it. Install any Linux distro. You wont have any problem.
