Fallout!
I've also heard good things about Planescape Torment, but I haven't played it yet....

Planescape: Torment is one of the best RPG's of all time, imo (my favorite game, in fact) and was recently added to GoG. If you like Baldur's Gate, odds are you will also enjoy torment, since it is also an infinity engine game, and made by Black Isle like Fallout 1 and 2. (which are also there, as reptilia_kun pointed out, and also great).  
 
Edit: dang, beaten to mentioning Torment. Well, in any case, play it.

Icewind Dale is fun, it's like a cross between Baulders Gate and Diablo.
Gothic 2 is worth a shot if you enjoy Bethesda style RPG's
Stonekeep is a fun first person dungeon crawler that was overlooked back in the day.  (made by the man who created Fallout)
Vampire: The Masquerade is worth every penny.

I hear great things about Arcanum, though I haven't ever been able to get much past the opening area before putting it away because the character creation system is daunting and the game plays in such a horribly low resolution (I have the same issue with Fallout, actually). At least with Baldur's Gate you have the option of hacking in higher resolutions and widescreen support with tools created by modders.

you can hack higher resolutions with Torment as well, since it runs on the same engine as the BG games. There are also fan-made resolution patches for the Fallout games.

Definitely Planescape Torment.
Also tempted to say Neverwinter Nights, but the main game wasn't particularly interesting..  the expansions are far better though and it's worth playing if you're into Baldur's Gate and Planescape, etc.

I agree with most of thoses mentioned and I'd add Temple of Elemental Evil. While the plot is not so great it's one of the most faithful adaptations of D&D 3.5 ruleset and is cheaper than other D&D games on GOG. Besides, it's not set in Forgotten Realms like most D&D games from that time, so it's a plus if you're a little sick of Faerûn.

Definitely get Planescape Torment. GOG recently put up a mod guide on the website too, which is awesome because a few mods really improve the experience.

And Baldur's Gate 2, Icewind Dale, Icewind Dale 2 (whenever BG2 makes it to GOG). Then you could even go as far as playing the Baldur's Gate 1 to Baldur's Gate 2 engine conversion for an enhanced playthrough of the original game, although I'd recommend at least playing through the original once because the difficulty is sort of lost in the translation (at least, from my experience).

Two Worlds doesn't seem too bad, as well as all the other CRPGs that have already been mentioned here.
