At this point it's an issue of speed, price, and resolution.
A Radeon 9800 might be cheaper, the X800XT should be faster (but may not be as the R300 driver may be better optimized), and the Radeon 9650 does offer higher resolution ( but it's by far the slowest, even slower than a standard 9600).
OK, my fault. It's been 9600 XT. Here are my GfxSpeed results:
Apple Radeon 9800 Pro: 12485 points
Apple Radeon 9600 XT: 12234 points
Apple Radeon X850 XT: 12017 points
