Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF vs. Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM

I'm about to buy a D90 kit with the 15-105mm VR lens from Adorama, but I also want a good prime lens. I've been shooting with a Ricoh GRDII for the past year and I want something more, and something closer, so 50mm seems right for the job. The big question I have it whether to buy the quite expensive Sigma 50mm lens or the very affordable older Nikon AF. At the moment, Adorama is sold out of Nikon's new 50mm lens thats priced similarly to the Sigma.
Is Sigma really worth the price difference?
