Depends on your price range. If you really want marble, you'll be looking at aorund $200. Tournament sets (hard plastic) are around $30. Some of those discount stores have nice glass chess sets that look pretty good for as little as $10-15.

The glass ones look pretty - but... the glass board is a bit suxy. It hard to tell the difference between the frosted and clear squares so which square is white and which is black - I had to get a texter and scribble on the back of mine to make it better.
