If those are your two choices there is no reason to go with the pro except for cashflow issues. The XTPE outperforms in every way... just remember that the Geforce 6800U has 9.0c support and the XTPE doesn't so down the line when shader 3.0 is in more games the Geforce may run them faster and with better quality...

The XT is slightly better than the PRO, but just by a few extra features here and there.

Either way, both cards are awesome and will definetely not disappoint you.

Thumbs up

Go for the XT PE if you are a fan of ATI. You won't be dissapointed at all as mentioned above.
