If you open the GPOs in GPMC and look on the setting tab, it will show which settings are applied and their values

Download the GPMC if you have not got it and run a model ( option near the bottom ) and then do it for the other and you will be able to see the differences that affect either a computer or user in your network. Alternativly you can run rsop.msc on client machine

No great way natively,  SDM makes a very nice tool called GPO Compare

more on GPO Compare here  http://adisfun.blogspot.com/2009/05/product-review-gpo-compare-from.html

You can download the trial and use it to see what you think, the trial is fully functional.

Thanks

open GPMC go to each of the GPO's you want to compare and copy the settings page  ensuring that all settings are visible-  Right click copy

Paste them into a text file i.e. gpo1.txt and gpo2.txt and then run file compare to see what is different or copy the data into a column A and Column B in a spreadsheet and check by yourself.

Command:

FC gpo1.txt gpo2.txt

This will really only show you the first difference and you would need to work out the rest as it will compare line by line so it you have an extra setting in 1 of the GPO's the line number will be out for everything below that.

You can use DumpGPOInfo.ws to list the GPO information which would help you to compare 2 GPO's.
