Default Need Video card for Ubuntu 10.10

I have been looking in ebay and it looks like I can buy any APG Nvideo Card I want. So Im looking for something that is inexpensive But it has to be easily installed as far as the drivers are concerned . Ideally just install it and it can be recognised and drivers installed and set up. It probably is asking for to much but Im new to linux and Ive read a few descriptions of installing drivers and I dont have a clue. My old Via/s3g is freezing the screen. I need very little when it comes to a video card, I dont do games, I watch some you tube . So simple and inexpensive is the word. It has to be a APG card.

Thanks for the response I need a APG card, The board has pci slots but it has a Apg video built into my mom board. I will be getting a XFX 6600 GT so for now the problem is solved, my next problem is to find out how to install it
