The X600 Pro is the better card. Though this isn't necessarily the deciding factor, keep in mind though that the X600 Pro is PCI-E x16 and the 9550 is AGP.

i have a few question, as the number of Radeon X series goes up, does that means its better? for EX. Radeon X1300.
also, is there a difference between an ATI Radeon X600, X600 Pro, and an All-In-Wonder X600?
Lastly, I saw an X600 pro on Ebay that says i need an Intel Pentium 4 Processor to run it, but i checked the ATI website, it didnt say anything about what processor i need, The processor i have is an Intel® Celeron® D Processor 3521
(3.20GHz, 533MHz FSB, 512KB L2 cache)

Yes. The vanilla X600 is just the regular variant, the Pro should be faster, and the XT should be even faster. The All-In-Wonder cards are essentially the X600 GPU paired with the Rage Theatre chip and it has TV tuning capabilities. It's great for HTPC's.

You don't need an Intel Pentium 4 just to run an X600 Pro.
