The best GPUs money can buy as of now are ATI's X1950 series and nVidia's 7950 series. They're not cheap, though.

Right now a good AGP card would be the BFG Technologies GeForce 7600 GS Overclocked (this is my personal opinion though). It has 512MB of DDR2 VRAM 12 Pixel Pipelines (pretty standard) And is Vista Ready $150 is the average price for this. Take a look at the reviews: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814143069 I've had my eye on this one for a while. Still have to wait for the money.

Best PCI-E card in my opinion is the ATI Radeon X1900XTX. But that would probably cost you a fortune. And it is noisy I've heard. What card do you have now? Are you going to make huge updates, like to your motherboard and stuff. What do you have now? AGP or PCI-E.
