The new Nvidia GTX460 is an excellent choice. It resides at around the $200 price point and doesnt suffer from the heat/power consumption issues as its big brothers (470/480). Or you can look at the HD 5770 or 5830. And don't bother looking at the "Superclocked" versions. You will be paying $20+ for something that can be easily done at home for free.
