Heard worse with the 5700 Ultra. I would advise for the 5900, but i have a 9800 Pro and i say it's alot better than my other card 5900xt (yes, it's a budget card, i kno, but still better than a 5700 Ultra).

my 5700 card, (not ultra though) stopped working after two months. Dont know what happened to it, but I had a sh!tty case before so perhaps it got overheated. Oh well gonna ship it out tomorrow for a replacement.
