I think the biggest difference in linux, with a machine of your speed, will
be how good your soundcard / videocard is.  Also, if you are new to linux,
it will save you a load of grief by starting with one of the more popular
multimedia distributions like Ubuntu, 64studio, or Fedora, as there is
support to get you through the problems you will run into.

I think any Linux OS / windowing environment will be faster that windows,
provided it is configured properly and all your hardware is supported.
