Does it matter if it's ASUS, ATI, AMD, Sapphire? Or all that matters is that it's HD5750 Radeon?

They're all using the same chip from ATI/AMD... ASUS just sticks on their label.

It's all the same.

Well, yes and no.  Asus tend to design their own board, cooling, power delivery system for their cards.  The chip is the same, but the board it's soldered to is usually very different.  Same result, but it may or may not be faster/quieter/more reliable than something like a Sapphire which is just AMD's design with a sticker on it.

Well I think for a 5750 it's not a big issue which brand you get. Even with the best custom board design and cooling it will make minimal difference in hashing speed.

ATI is the brand who builds the gpu. Its sort of like saying a Intel/AMD custom build computer is different than a dell computer.  They are different but essentially the same.

I would suggest reading up on computers before getting deep into mining/btc/ltc
