First thing first:

A) What's your budget?
B) What's your interface? (AGP, PCI, PCI-E)

A good overall card right now for the average gamer is the nVidia GeForce 7600GT, if you've got PCI-E (though I think they make an AGP version). Good bang for the buck.

Check out the Geforce 7600GT. Best bang for buck deal out right now. It'll play most games at max settings, or at least high.

560 MHz:

580 MHz (but a little noisy):

I own the second one and I highly recommend it.. Great card, and it doesn't cost too much. I play Oblivion at max settings with no problem, and FEAR at high but not quite max settings with 40 FPS.
