That's a very hard question

You can have a minimal system with just reaper and a window manager, or KDE/GNOME with the kitchensink installed. You can most likely configure any distro to run reasonably well.

I've never used it myself, but from what I understand from other people http://www.bandshed.net/avlinux/ is probably the best solution to wet your feet with linux. It already set up for low latency audio and has loads of audio programs and plugins thanks to http://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Repositories

You could install avlinux on an usb stick and boot from that just for testing.
