Default Graphics Card

I'm building a computer and I need a graphics card. I'm not sure what to get, I want a good one but I rarely game, so I dont want to spend over 150-200 (note thats pound sterling) any suggestions.
I'm gonna post the specs for my computer soon. Its looking good!!

nah, it should be about $400, with exchange rates. Im going to the US soon, so maybe I could see about getting one over there, the exchange rate is roughly 50p to a dollar, so everything is pretty much half price, thats great, I save 100 if I get it from the US, the only problem being getting it back here
