If you don't need a high-end gaming card, just get a motherboard that has onboard Intel graphics. It is fantastic! I used to use nvidia and always had to get the livna nvidia drivers and they never showed up on time with the new kernels, so I'd be waiting, on a few occasions a couple of weeks running an old kernel because livna hadn't yet released the appropriate nvidia kernel module. With Intel, you don't have any of this hassle, as it's all built into X. Intel supports video effects, like OpenGL compositing and Compiz-Fusion, too (although at the moment, the driver is unstable with my KDE4 setup, but it was working excellently up until the most recent X server release last week, so it is just a matter of time before all will be even better than before). Go with Intel and you'll save a bundle, too, as a MoBo costs about $150 and you've got graphics and audio and LAN and all...
