At this point it looks like the upgrade won't be available until sometime in 2002, with it being both a hardware and software upgrade. The pricing has been guessed at between $150 and $1000, so it's anyone's guess as to what it will actually cost.
My advice (and I've taken it myself) is to sit back and wait for the official announcement. In the meantime, use and enjoy your 5800 for what it is right now.
