best cable modem for Macs - Mac Networking

I'm tired of renting my cable modem and want to buy my own. Any recommendations? I like the look of the Linksys cable modem because it would match my Linksys hub and cable, but I think it's kind of pricey. Are all cable modems pretty much the same inside? Does it matter whether I spend $69 or $199? Anyone here had experience with the GlobalVillage cable modem?...

    I've been using a RCA Cable Modem DCM245R for more than a year without
    problems on Comcast. Radio Shack sells them. I think they're under $100.

    I also have comcast and an RCA Cable modem. Works perfectly. Call your
    ISP and ask them what "DOCSIS compliant" cable modem they recommend. You
    might google DOCSIS cable modem and see what comes up. There are at
    least to forms of the DOCSIS standard (I can't remember the version
    numbers) but my impression is that most cable companies try to make
    their service work with the lowest common denominator.
