I'd not worry much about gromacs - given that there are assembly 
language optimizations for Athlon 64 (I believe so), stuff like MPI and 
FFTW will run well on anything, so gromacs will be fine. I'd choose your 
distribution to suit your hardware, sysadmin and users. On machines I 
use, there is FC4 on Intel 32, and modified SuSe SLES 9 on Itanium2.
