To answer your original question, Waltar has a 5800Ultra for $170 on the FS/FT board.

The only 5900 you'll likely get for that (new anyway) is an XT, and it won't be much, if any, faster unless you OC it. You can get 9700Pros for less than $200, they'll be faster at DX9, slower at most non AA/AF, and about the same up to 4x8x.

It would be quieter though.

Nonetheless, loving the 5800Ultra I've been using.
