I think its more likely the 5900U will be phased out (price doesnt always drop when this happens), and you will have:

MX4000 - $50
FX 5200 - $75 (64-bit)
FX 5200 - $90 (128-bit)
FX 5700 - $130
FX 5700 Ultra - $150
FX 5900XT - $190
6800 - $299
6800GT - $399
6800 Ultra - $499
6800 Ultra Extreme - $549

You CPU is fine for the 5900XT, and would be fine for the 6800 non-ultra (12x1) as well... if you can wait a few weeks and can spend $300, go for that, it will trounce the 5900xt.
