Please recommend a fast linux distribution

Hello,I tried several distributions from most types of enviroments and I can't seem to find one that can make me move out from XP.
The last I tried was Lubuntu 11.10 it seemed to be the most lightest version of Lubuntu but still not faster than Xp.
I did a little comparison.
I took an audio file of 458 MB and transfered from Destktop to Home/Videos and it took 17:37 seconds while in XP from desktop to my documents it took 17:34 seconds and I also had Avast antivirus installed.
Eventaully I come back at Xp for performance.
Perhaps some advice?
