Both outperform the 5900 xt i think
The 128-bit 9800 Pro is not something you'll want if you want to have better performance than a nVidia card at similar prices.
And the 5900xt is similar or a bit better than the 9600xt, which still doesn't stand a chance against a 256-bit 9800 Pro.
So go with the 9800 Pro with 128mb/256mb of 256-bit ram. They are around $180+ online.
