Following the title, can someone recommend a graphics card for my motherboard?

This is my motherboard: http://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdetails.asp?model=945GZ%20MICRO%20775%20SE

I don't want to use the integrated graphics card provided as it is very slow.

What kind of use are you looking to get out of this video card? Gaming? Regular browsing? etc? –  commradepolski Aug 30 '10 at 12:56

What you looking for is the PCI-Ex16 slot on the motherboard. That's what you should be looking for in type of graphics card. Here are a few from NewEgg.

A quick guide to selecting a gaming video card is looking at the memory of the card, and the gpu. For example: a video card with only 128 Mb of ram on the card, will have to pull lots of memory from the system. However a video card with 1 gig of ram or more will have to "borrow" less from the pc. Here is a good guide to buying a GPU for the best money from Tom's Hardware.
