Continued problem with HDMI audio drivers and Windows 7 ultimate x64 sp1.

I am having so much trouble with Windows. I was wondering if I could get a suggestion as to which version of Linux would work best with my mobo? Its a AMD dedicated mobo,  GA-MA785GM-US2H (rev. 1.1)  It has the two AMD onboard chip sets for Video and Audio.  The North Bridge: AMD 785G and South Bridge: AMD SB710. I also have the AMD Phenom II x6 1090T as my cpu and onboard memory of 2Gb x 4.   My biggest problem now is that no matter what I do I can't get the HDMI output to send both sound and video to my TV or my computer monitor.  Its driving me mad that I cant get windows 7 ultimate x64 sp1 to let me install HDMI drivers for the onboard sound.  I had a major malfunction of the win7 os and had to reinstall.  Everything worked fine till the problem, now I have no HDMI sound.    I was wondering about switching to a Linux OS. What are your recommendations with this AMD Gigabyte board and CPU? Unless you have a solution for my HDMI audio driver issue.
