If the series of card is the same, they will preform the same.

Each manufacture puts their own "spin" on it, like fans.

Between those, I'd go with XFX for the double lifetime warranty.

AMD and NVidia do not make the cards that you buy. They only design the chips. The chips are fabricated by a ASIC fabrication company under contract (they use Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, aka TSMC). These chips are then purchased by equipment manufacturers such as Sapphire, XFX, Gigabyte and HIS who then create the video cards based on a reference design provided by the chip designers. Some equipment manufacturers such as Asus make extensive modifications to the reference design but most don't.

By and large, there is not a huge difference between most manufacturers but some can be of much higher quality than others. Asus, Gigabyte, Sapphire, XFX and EVGA are amongst the best of the best

Adding to pin's post, one major difference in GPU brands is customer support and quality control.

Sapphire for example has great products but lacks customer support. XFX and HIS are about equal in those regards.

I'd say grab the cheaper one. If they're the same then follow foscooter's advice.

Also, can you link them? Both companies make several 5770s and the exact model might make a difference.

They dropped that a little while ago, too many RMA's perhaps?

Go with whatever one has the best reviews for the particular model.
