6 of one and half a dozen of the other.
In some tests the XT comes out on top, in others it's the 5950.

Neither are the fastest at everything. Go to the link below and see what
hardware gives the games you intend to play gives the best performance.

Also Stability and Compatibility should also be a factor in your decision.

Nvidia is faster in OpenGL. Also drivers for Nvidia are better and I tested
R9700 and was not very happy. I am using my Ti4800 and do not have flasshing
shadows, missing distant objects...

Cat 3.10 was supposed to fix all those problems for the Ati cards.
Of course, if you believe that, I might be able to find a bridge to
sell you...........

The 9800XT is slightly faster. The 5950 Ultra has more stable drivers
