the radeon 9000 and 9100 aren't an option IMHO. They are based off of the old Radeon 8500's and don't offer really any of the benifits of their bigger brother cards.
I'd say, your choices are..
1) GeForce4 ti4200 128MB AGP4x ($150)
2) Radeon 9500 128MB not Pro ($175 - but the price will drop once the 9600's get released widely)
I suggest the Radeon for a few reasons. It's feature set is much more up to date with the times. It is DirectX 9 ready, so it will take advantage of any upcomming games that utilize DirectX 9 over OpenGL (which I can't imagine why they would do that, but none the less)
. It's anti-aliasing is far far far more superior, both in speed and in image quality.
[Edit] Hmmm. I think think the Radeon 9500 cards may be outa ur price range. But hey, if you can splurge, go for it. It will be worth it

In all seriousness, I don't think the Radeon 9000 or even 9100 are much faster than the GeForce4 MX 440 128MB in most situations. And even if they are, probably not near enough to make it worth paying for a new card.
