Web Cam

My daughter has suggested she buys me a web cam for my birthday so that our family chats via Skype can be more "personal". What does the forum recommend as a cheap and cheerful camera with minimal setting-up and decent pixel count ?
Your suggestions please. (without being rude!)

Win XP, 3G CPU, 1G memory

I had an old USB 1 Webcam, Changed to a USB 2 one recently and the quality is much better.

I Got a creative live effects cam for about £30 and am very happy.

This one came with a little mono speaker headset with mike (now I have a spare).

I use it to video skype family in Australia and it works very well
