Right now the Radeon 8500 seems to be a good choice and is less expensive then the Geforce4. If you are a hardcore gamer stay away from the Geforce4MX series as these are supposedly not actually Geforce 4 chipset boards at all.

From what I hear, the Geforce4 MX400 isn't much of an improvement from the Geforce3, and perhaps less favorable than the Geforce3 TI 500-550. The articles I've seen suggest waiting for the Geforce4 TI 550.
I have heard good things about the Raedon 8500, but a lot of "experts" are wary of previous ATI driver issues that plagued some of the earlier models. The Raedon 7500 also seems to be a decent choice.
If you are like me, your wallet will probably help to decide for you, so be aware - High end cards can be pretty expensive !!

Yup, ATI has had some driver issues in the past but the general consensus is they tweaked the livin' daylights out of the last official drivers released.
