If you'd like to describe your 'flicker' problem, maybe people here could help.
To answer your question directly, the only suggestion that the 9600pro is an upgrade to your 5800/oc to ultra is the recently released HL2 benchmarks. But don't be stupid and upgrade just because of a press release, wait till you try the game yourself. If you do want to upgrade, consider one of the 9800 varients, but look out for the really low memory speed version, it's slower than a 9600.
