Router buying advice

  1. I am looking to buy a wireless router, but I have not used one before, and am a bit lost as to knowing what one to get.

    It will be used to connect to my PC and Xbox 360 via a wired connection and PS3 and PSP via wireless. It has to be compatible with both XP and Vista, and be less than $150.

    I don't want a router with an ADSL modem built in, as I have a wireless broadband internet connection. And is it worth getting an 802.11n router, even if none of my devices support that standard? Would it still give faster speeds?

    I really don't know which brand offers the best reliability and performance, so it would be a big help to get a recommendation from someone who knows about routers.

    One that caught my eye was the Gigabyte AirCruiser, but it is a bit dated and doesn't say it works with Vista (which I will need if I upgrade my PC).

    If anyone knows of the best router that fits my criteria, I would be very grateful for any advice. :)
