No you'r wrong just like in the 7** series chipset you had the 790x and 790fx and there is a big difference between them.Look it up, go to asus and you will see that they have 2 different motherboards.

Axe the 1055 and get a 955
Then spend the extra cash to go from a 5770 to a gtx 460.
This combined will give you a lot better gaming rig.

eh.. like said above, go with the 955, it'll suit you just fine. games hardly use all 4 cores, let alone 6.

x6 is for a bit more intense stuff.

PowerColor is crap. Pay the few extra and get a card from a more solid company. Also switch to 955 / 965 if you are purely using your PC for gaming. If you do video editing or anything it becomes a bit more blurry which processor you should go with.

It doesnt matter what branding is on the packaging, they all do the same things, they all perform equally unless its factory overclocked.
