Define 'best' in this case.

ATI should be ok if the motherboard is AMD processor. But better to have a dedicated graphic card like nVidia.

Gma500 :P

Only kidding, stay away from this card like the plague!

Integrated graphics are horrible. Is this for a laptop? If not don't put yourself through that.

The one built into the Clarkdale (i5) package is supposed to be quite good and has drivers in lucid I believe.

I have used a Nvidia 6150SE and it was great even for some semi modern gaming. Currently my laptop has a Intel Series 4 Mobile chip, and it play 1080p video and flash without a hiccup. (Not so great for gaming but it works).
