I know the XT9800 pro is a better card but it costs £100 more. £'s per pixel makes the FX5900 256 ultra better value for money.

The second big advantage is the extreme soundlvel of the 5800 is gone. The 5900 is a quite still vga card.
OC possibilities compared with the 2 ones:
The FX 5800[ 400 / 800 ] was possible to OC to the same speed as the Ultra [ 500 / 1000 ]
Someone says in this topic, it is the same as an upgrade from a TI 4200 to a TI 4400, really not the same.
I am testing this stuff the whole day by an importing company, so i see the differences between all excisting vga cards
