sorry for may ignorance but id like to understand
The FX5500 and the 8800GTX are basically the same card. There is a different BIOS, a few minor PCB changes, and maybe a memory size difference. In fact, it is often possible to mod the desktop cards into workstation cards.

The price premium comes from mostly the fact that if you need it... you will pay. It's like the military paying for $10,000 toilet seats.

Just to clarify...

GeForce FX 5500 = Worst desktop series videocard ever made
Quadro FX 5500 = Workstation videocard
