And what do you think of the rVGA one for 260?
if you're that worried, there is the Leadtek one for $245.99
I personally didn't get a warranty on my card though. And I have voltmodded it and overclocked it a lot.
I'd recommend you go for PCI-E first of all. the monitor is less important.
However you might want to get a 22" sometime later on.
I was running on an AGP 6200 one time. I upgraded my motherboard to one with PCI-E, and got a 7900 GT (though that one died when I put it into a friend's PC)
I've got the same CPU though: a Sempron 2800+. Using the new motherboard, I have since got it to 2240MHZ (stock 1600MHZ)
