    Hello Guys.
    Tomorrow I am gona get my new HDDs and I am gona reformat my entire computer.
    Planning to put SUSE 9.1 or Debian on 1 seperate old 40GB HDD of mine.
    Now I know people dont use linux for gaming but I plan to use it for gaming.
    I know for sure DOOM3 and americas army works fine.
    I have downloaded new 66.29 drivers for linux and will install them.
    Also I heard from my friends that Neef for speed underground 1 works well with wine. So I am planning to install that game too.
    But my question is which linux is better for gaming?
    If anyone has used linux for gaming i will really apperitiate their experties.

    What is this man why are you giving a second hand treatment to linux. Give the old disk to windows and load linux Debian or Gentoo on the new SATA or SCSI ones.
