Generally speaking, any Epson inkjet should work "pretty good" with the
current CUPS/gimp-print combo. I have a Stylus C80 (USB) and it works
magnificently, and with almost no configuration effort on my part,
thanks to the Project Utopia people. (In fact, the gimp-print/foomatic
drivers provide a better maximum quality than the Windows drivers!) This
printer cost me about $40 USD after a small rebate (bought in about the
middle of 2005 some time).

There are some which are better than others in terms of driver support,
et al. You may want to take a look at LinuxPrinting's suggested printers list:

Hope that helps.
