They are both from the same company, XFX, and have the same specs (I glanced through them.)

Other than one being $10 more and having a sexier shroud whats the difference?

The 577X has a non reference cooler, which means it's spitting its hot air inside the case. The ATI reference cooler sucks in air from the case and throws it outside. That's the only difference.

one uses the stock ATI 5770 cooler and one uses a custom XFX cooler (which im guessing is cheaper to build)

the custom cooler looks to be a revised form of the rev2 cooler

either card will work just fine since the ATI 5770 runs cool to begin with

Cool, Im willing to spend an extra 10 dollars on this card only because it looks like one of those ati cards that people spend several hundred dollars on. It will look cool in my case, and I like the fan. Looks like a wheel ahaha. Sorry for having such cheap thrills, I really like the "Expensive Look".
