Corrected spells & capitalization.

Handle RowDataBound event of the GridView and apply your logic over there.

RowDataBound event will fire at every row which is created while DataBound

For Datagrid the event is 'ItemDataBound' and for Gridview the event is 'RowDataBound'.

sample:
C#
protected void DataGrid_ItemDataBound(object sender, DataGridItemEventArgs e)
{
     Textbox tbx1 = (TextBox)e.Row.FindControl("ActualCostTextbox");
     Textbox tbx2 = (TextBox)e.Row.FindControl("EstimatedCostTextbox");
     if (tbx1 != null & tbx2 != null)
     { 
         // compare, validate the values of tbx1 & tbx2
         // you got tbx1.Text & tbx2.Text value here. 
         // Do any calculation desired.
         // based on it logic, set the CSS of the row.
     }
}

Itemtemplate itself does not show anything! There must/has to be some control in it. Right?
hi try it
protected void CustomersGridView_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
  {
    if(e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
    {
      Textbox tbx1 = (TextBox)e.Row.FindControl("ActualCostTextbox");
      Textbox tbx2 = (TextBox)e.Row.FindControl("EstimatedCostTextbox");
      if (tbx1 != null&&tbx2 != null)
      {
         // Your code.....
      }
    }
  }
