OC GPU or Non-OC GPU

What's the difference between a gpu that says OC on it and one that doesn't. I know it means overclock, I just need to know exactly.

Generally they come with a factory overclock, a faster speed, as an extra boost in performance over default values. For people that don't want to manually overclock their components for whatever reason it might be desirable. For people that do overclock, they often "bin" certain chips for better potential clock values. They test and then sort the chips. Whatever is faster is better, which means more expensive.
