Mame-X hasn't been updated in a long time, and uses the outdated .61 (or is it .63?) core.
MameoX is based upon the same code, but it is updated more frequently and looks much better. And because it uses the latest source code, it supports more games.

Two diffrent ports of the MAME core. The latest version of MAMEoX uses the .72 core and MAME-X uses .61 or something like that.

MAMEoX support more games than MAME-X, but MAME-X plays some games better (narc, for instance. Huge diffrence. At least for me. =)). I have heard somewhere (think it's in the compatability listing for MAME-X) that in later versions than the .61 core the sound for some roms (golden axe for one, I believe) is broken.

MAMEoX is being actively worked on and MAME-X isn't.

If you are into MAME, then you should get both, if it doesn't run good in MAMEoX, try it in MAME-X. If it doesn't run well there, then... you are out of luck. =) Smile and wait for the next update of MAMEoX or (dare we dream? =)) MAME-X.

If you want to know what MAME is, then you should look at these web-pages:

http://www.mame.dk/

EDIT: I started writing this reply before Bender_Unit_1 replyed, just forgot to post it. Promise! =)
