  2. Best answer
    The 9800GT is definitely the most powerful of the three but whether it's a better buy than the HD4670 depends on what deal you can find for each of them.
    The GT 240 is overpriced and shouldn't really be considered on a best for the money basis.
  3. GT240 ~ 9600GT
    4670 ~ 9600GSO
    8800GT ~ 9800GT
    4670 < 9600GT < 9800GT

    GTS 240 if you just look for a good video card at low price.
    For upgrade go for GTX 470 or HD5850.
