Just gonna throw this out there, but Arch Linux, a very minimalist 
default install, coupled with the LXDE desktop would perform EXTREMELY 
well. and with pacman/yaourt you can easily install anything you need.
No fluff, no bloat, you get what you install and nothing else. AwesomeWM 
is pretty popular with alot of the Arch Linux users too, but tiling 
windows are my bag.
The community is very large and it's wiki rivals, if not bests Gentoo's 
in completeness. And, lastly Arch is cutting edge, so there's no need to 
wait 917 years for that one off Wireless driver to get into the repos, 
but unlike a lot of 'cutting edge' distros, Arch is brutally stable.
