Can you recommend free (or cheap) graphing software for Windows?

Are there any good open source graphing packages out there? I am fed up of my presentations being full of ugly Excel-generated graphs. I use a range of bar charts, pie charts and line graphs, and generally they all (especially the pie charts) look ugly in Excel (I use Excel 2003 but am told by friends that the more recent versions look just as bad).
This may be optimistic, but I'd prefer free as it's a fairly occasional use, but if a good quality product has a small, but reasonable, fee (e.g. not the > $500 cost of say Graphpad Prism) then I would still be interested.
If there really aren't any good free or very cheap options what is the best full scale package you have used?
