Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

i think you'll find that games under wine won't run very well, as servers. still, worth a shot.

just get a server with lots of ram (3gb) and a really fast processor.

You can only run a server for those games, IF they have server software that runs on linux. I know counter-strike has one, try searching for "hlds linux" on google.
You can use any distro you want, however for a dedicated server you better stick to some minimalist distro e.g. slackware
