Default Help with video card

I was wondering exactly what the openGL feature on a video card is. Most version of openGL that i see in video card specs is either 1.5 or 2.0. What exactly is openGL and which one should i buy?

ps- i will mainly be playing games on my comp.

OpenGL is a format of 3d graphics management like DirectX. The OpenGL version shouldn't matter...I've never found a difference in my FX5900XT with 1.5...and I play OpenGL games like Quake III and Call of Duty
