Well all you need is something that can use direct X9.0 so cheap cards will work fine. I like either of these depending on your favored price. The difference in model doesn't sound like a lot but the 7600GT is much better than the 7300GT.
Geforce 7300GT 256mb $55 - $20 mail in rebate.

Geforce 7600GT 256mb $90 - $15 mail in rebate.

Also the Geforce 7600GT one is apparently high quality since it has really good reviews (75% of 650 people gave it a 5, 15% gave it a 4) and won a customer choice award.
Meanwhile the 7300GT one is only $35 after the rebate!
Regardless they can both run Team Fortress 2.
