since you aren't going to be playing any really technical games on your computer, you should probably go with an ATI graphics card. Anything cheap with say, 64 bit and 128 mb of ddr will do. The low cards that are 32 bit and 64 mb ddr, run about 40.00, so I can assume that a card you will want, with 64 bit and 128 mb ddr by ATI will cost about $60-$80.00 Good idea about the large hard drive. You said you want a faster pc, but the graphics card isnt the only thing that'll do the job. More memory will also do the trick. 512 mb sticks of ddr also give a speed boost, especially if they have a high pc number like pc2700 or 3200.
