Do you play games a lot, and are they newer games? If they are depending on what game you play a 4870 would be a good price per performance.
I also vote for the 4870, and XFX for quality service and the double lifetime warranty.

Is see that your monitor is only 17"... With low res i guess your overclocked 9800gt can still handle all new games in very high settings except crysis. So i'd hold out til the new cards come is i were you, but if you can't the 4870 is a pretty good upgrade.
8800GT is already overkill for your monitor. if you got money to burn, go buy a larger display instead and wait for new cards to come out that are right around the corner.
