I don't think waiting is worth it. The 9800m GT is a actually a re-branded 8800m GTX, and the 9800m GTX has 112 processor cores versus 96 in the 8800m GTX/9800m GT. The 9800m GTX will be even more expensive and generate more heat.
I currently own an m1730 with dual 8700m GT's, and at 1280x800 it runs demanding games like Crysis and Stalker very well. I wish the 8800m GTX was cheaper, the 8700m SLI really holds my laptop back with only 256MB of memory in each card.
