Are there any vitamins/supplements that are actually worth taking?

I've always been of the mindset, "If you are generally healthy, vitamins are dumb, eat a better diet." I need to take a medication twice daily and since I'm already guzzling pills I'm wondering if there are any that might actually benefit me? I've started with a calcium +D and a Fish Oil since I figure those are two I actually don't get enough of in my diet.
Are there any other ones that are probably a worthwhile addition?
(I'm not looking for suggestions like, "Echinacea for your immune system" because I specifically am not interested in herbal supplements with dubious/no health benefits . )
FWIW I am a healthy 26 year old non-pregnant female.
