Hi I can get both these cards for about the same price, which would be a
better buy, games is the big usage.

its depends by what you mean. the 9800pro wqill normally be the better
choice than the 5900 ultra. However the 5950 will lose to the 9800xt.
Normally with future shader intensive games the x800xx will be more
poxwerful then the 6800xx?

The 6800 U has faster shaders than the X800XT.
