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.

GTS 250 is the way to go if you wonna play on high resolution. (i have it allready)
GTS 240 if you just look for a good video card at low price.
For upgrade go for GTX 470 or HD5850.
