There are a couple of things to consider. If you intend to shoot USPSA/IPSC, you will probably compete in Production division, and everyone is scrored minor, and everyone is limited to ten rounds per mag (USPSA), so the playing field is level, in that respect.
You could choose to shoot in Limited 10 division, and that's where you would have to decide if you want to compete at minor power factor with no capacity advantage - in Single Stack division, where the XD can't play, you can load 10 at minor, and 8 at major - balancing the lower scoring of minor with lower recoil and hopefully better, faster hits.
In IDPA competition, major and minor never compete together, so you'd be limited to Enhanced Service Pistol where, again, everyone is shooting minor and everyone is loading 10.
