I'm still trying to figure that out.

I want something that will get the FULL potential out of my system (64-bit).

yup, so true. linux will detect all your hardware and find drivers for them all. and the best part is, they all are going to work.

try the gentoo agex, i think sithspawn said that it will support 64bit. i know that suse pro supports it, but i'm not sure u can download the pro version and the boxed pro version costs $80.
