After testing in Vbox. I think I going to "X" fluxbox off the list. I don't like how the "start menu" works and how right click on the desktop is.
Now for LXDE or Xfce I could go ether way. What's faster? What makes one better then the other?

My current setup with Mint 9 eats my CPU sometimes 100% that's why I would need the lightest distro there is. My config is Celeron D 3,06 GHz, 2 GB DDR RAM, nVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 512 MB and Mint 9 consumes 100% CPU at times. And, is Fluxbox able to run Win games via Wine normally?
Have you installed Nvidia Graphics Driver through Hardware Drivers option in Administrative Menu?
You have a good spec'd machine and I'd believe Linux Mint 9 Main Edition or KDE would suffice for your system unless you plan on lowering RAM consumption by using XFCE/LXDE/Fluxbox.
You may need to tweak your wine via winetricks to be able to run somegames (basically winetricks is quite similar to Synaptic Package Manager except it download and install windows related patches (eg: I can't run Irfanview unless I use winetricks to install MFC42.dll)
Also I found that 100% cpu consumption to be quite suspicious. You may want to try throttling the processor down (used to install a Gnome applet that lowers another laptop's CPU from 1.6Ghz to 800Mhz). In addition you may want to look into existing bugs related to that problem
