According to this very reliable site, the cards are very similar in spec. TheX850 might be faster on the core and the mem but it has only 12 pipelines whereas the 800XL has 16.

The above website lists its cards in order of how good the cards are and but since there's no definate way to tell, and they are both together on the list, I would personally go for the one with 16 pipes.
