Gauche is when the large atoms are staggered adjacent to each other (60 degrees) and anti is when the large atoms are opposite each other (180 degrees). Both are staggered but the names gauche and anti tell you the different energies of the conformations. Anti is the most stable (lowest energy) and gauche is less stable than anti but more stable than eclipsed.
