3D Video Card

Presently I have a ASUS P5LD2-VM M/B with 4 Gigs of RAM. The onboard chipset for the display is Intel 82945G. I would like to upgrade to a good 3D video card. Any ideas on the best buy for the dollar, on this system. Any other advice is invited.
Thanks in advance,

Though i'm not very certain, Nvidia 8800gt is a good graphics card though it's quite old. Read some reviews and you'll know.

I appreciate your response. It's folks like you and the other guy (who responded also) that makes this fourm work. I have purchased a NVDIA 9400 GT 1GB, and it improved the graphics of the machine drasticly. I was surprised that the cost of the upgrade was only $70+tax. I was ready to spend more, but I questioned putting a high dollar card in a system I built 3 or 4 years ago. This seemed like a good fit.
