have you read man iptables? There it says this:

NEW: " ... NEW meaning that the packet has started a new connection, or otherwise associated with a connection
             which has not seen packets in both directions ... "
syn: " ... Only match TCP packets with the SYN bit set and the ACK and RST bits cleared ... "

i'll give you a hint: the difference consists in the "or otherwise" part...

read man pages, google and *then* ask questions on this list... You don't want to be spoon-fed, do you?
