yeah and the good part is you should still be able to fetch a good price for your gts. so that should cut the price down by a good chunk

Usually I'd be rooting for ATI over Nvida, but from the way Nvidia has been playing the field lately. Doubt that the price difference between the 9800's and the 4870's will be that huge a gap. Not only in Video Cards is this happening but as well as their CPU's and Processors. So I don't think it'll be a huge success but more of a bloody mess really lol.
