Computer hardware: As part of her Christmas present, I want to buy my wife a video card for her PC (she's a serious geek). What's a good one? [more]

Despite being a programmer (sometimes), I try not to think too hard about hardware (as long as it does what I need). I haven't a clue about video cards, having never much been into graphics-intensive games or video. My wife, however, is a gamer and has been making noises about needing a new video card for her PC. What's good? Reliable? Easy to install? Will perform well with all the latest games? Any major gotchas to watch out for? Money not (too much of) a worry.
The machine it's intended for has an Asus P4B motherboard with a 1.8GHz P4 processor and 512MB RAM, if that helps.
