If you wqant to be able to run last years games and watch full screen
(1600 X 1200) video, the Nvidia 6600GToc works very well.  The fan on it
is quieter under full load then a high end 125mm case fan.

I can't say if it will run 2006's releases of games, but it runs DOOM 3,
UT2k4, Quake 4 very well.

Best of luck.
