DEFINATELY the 9600XT. that card HURTS the 5600. Note that the XT in nvidia cards is actually a lower standard, as apposed to ATi where XT means above standard.

Ahh but the Radeon is not an XT. I still think the Radeon is better.

In the battle between the Radion 9000 series and the GeForce FX series, ATI always wins. With the later generation of cards though there would be NO WAY anybody should choose ATI.

Is the 5600XT exactly the same card as the SE? I used to use a 5600SE, but a later nVidia driver renamed it to XT...

Whatever though, go with the Radeon.
