They're made by different companies to ATI reference specifications. Those manufacturers can change some things, offer free games or other software with the card, etc.

"which one is best?"

You'll have to check the specs of each card. Not all cards are created equal. Compare the core speeds, memory speeds, type of memory, type of output ports (VGA, DVI, S-video, HDMI), cooling fan design, & of course, price. And if you're going to install a gaming card, make sure you have a decent power supply with plenty of amps on the +12v rail:

"which one is best?"

Are you dense? I just told you --- you have to compare the specs & figure it out. I'm not gonna do it for you.

"If there all made my ATI Radeon why are they made by different companys? "

So that they can be made cheaper.
Up until about 1999, all ATI video chipset cards were made in Canada, by ATI. Since about 1999 they started making them in other countries, and allowing other manufacturers to use their video chips. Now even ATI's own cards are made in other countries.

The Radeon 5770 chips (and other Radeon video chips) themselves are all made by the ATI division of AMD. ATI and AMD merged about 5 years back. The boards you mentioned are "clone" boards made by other companies - in many cases there is ATI made version of a Radeon card as well, but it's more expensive for the same features. The boards vary according to the things in response 2, and which fan they use. If the board also has video capture, or TV out or HDTV out, the chip or chips for that is/are made by ATI. All Radeon cards these days are supplied with ATI drivers and related software rather than software made by the "clone" card maker, with the exception of usually, if not always, only ATI made cards come with ATI DVD decoding (player) software.

Why don't you choose the Sapphire HD5770 1GB?
It is very good.

Some Sapphire video cards have a superior fan / heatsink combo.

Some web sites, e.g. newegg or TigerDirect, have user reviews in the ad for the video card. If you look at all the user reviews, or many of them., you can often find out whether the fan/heatsink is a better one - the card runs relatively cool - or an average or not so good one - the card gets hot. With some cards there may be info about settings in the software for the card chipset you can use to cool the card better, or to make the fan run slower / quieter.
However, keep in mind that people who have had a problem are more likely to make a review that someone who had no problem, and some of those who had a problem are blaming their problem on something that has nothing to do with the card - e.g. their power supply capacity isn't enough to handle the card's requirements.
