You could use Visio http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/visio/ 

Visio for 2007/2003 is also available

Also smartdraw seems cool esp its predefined templates and color combination seems good www.smartdraw.com

Hope this helps!

Thanks!!!

Look for Chartist......
Looke closely, because there are a lot of features that you will discover after playing around e.g.
connect documents, presentations or executables to every element you draw.... Great for presentations..
