Is this possible at all?

GeForce FX 5200 = us$ 183
GeForce FX 5800 Ultra = us$ 155

Considering that it's brand new, fully functional, etc.

Please don't be sarcastic on me. Thanks.

Please correct me if I am wrong:

The GeForce 5800 Ultra was released before GeForce 5200 and 5600. The 5800 Ultra is cumbersome: noisy and huge. The 5200 and 5600 are lighter, even though they less powerful.

Now Nvidia has released FX5900 Ultra, so may I assume that the original nv30 fx5800 ultra is getting cheaper and obsolete prematurely?

I am serious.

The only reason that it could be so cheap is because Nvidia cancelled all production of the FX 5800's after 100,000 were produced, so they are most likely just trying to get rid of them.

That looks very much like a typo. NVidia aren't supplying the FX5900 yet, and for OEM's to buy an FX5800 it still costs $399. Unless it's broken, there's some mistake :p
