Default Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS ?

I installed in my current server Debian but I will buy another one next week and I'm thinking to change distribution. Which one do you personally think is best between Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS? The resources of the server are very limited which one runs better with low ram (2gb)?

EDIT: I posted the thread in the wrong section can someone move it?

Depends on for what. I have CentOS having more resources because you can access CentOS and Redhat resources.

i got an VPS thats running centos 6 with 64bit OS

happy on 1 GB ram with 1 GB of swap .... at most its never goes over 700 MB

only time i seen it using swap is when i use my Desktop system on it via VNC

i got web / SMTP/POP/FTP / SSH ... and its runs around 300 MB

but like anything it comes down to what you are going to be happy running and know best
