It depends on what you want to play, where you're from (some sites don't accept US players), how much you're going to deposit, and how long you're planning to stay.
A site like Carbon has 1 table hold'em SnG options, and they have small stakes hold'em cash games. They have a few smaller tournaments as well. But they're probably not a very good long term home, and they don't have very many large tournaments (which in my opinion is a good thing, but some of you may not). Also, if you're playing at non-peak hours the traffic can be pretty slow.
A site like Bodog has no rakeback, and only limits you to 3 tables. And it doesn't have that many microstakes games. Its not a bad place to chuck in $250, clear a bonus, and get out of. But its a pretty crappy place to make your home for an extended period of time.
All the other sites have little intricacies as well, so if you want to know about them, you just have to ask.
I know Party Poker & Titan don't allow US players.
