There is definitely not a big enough difference to justify the cost... I've used them both, they're both amazing, I saved over $100 getting the pro and I notice almost no difference whatsoever.

Less than 10FPS, its not worth the extra cost, you would be better off getting a X800 Pro for alittle more than the 9800XT
