Im going to upgrade my graphic cards soon and these are my options

Galaxy GeForce GTX 570 MDT X4 Overclocked $359
OR
Galaxy GeForce GTX 570 GC Edition $300

Currently i have
2 x EVGA GTX 550 ti in sli mode

which one should i pick up?
my buget fits the gtx 570 gc more than the mdt. Is there any REAL difference between these two cards?

Thanks

The MDT carries a price premium for the OC and for having 4 display outputs (you can use 3 screens simultaneously for gaming which you currently can't do with typical NVidia products). I would recommend going with the GC (or another 570 if you can find one with a lower price). You can OC this card yourself and get similar results.

If you are interested in using 3 screens I think AMD is probably the better choice since Eyefinity (their 3+ monitor technology) is a little more mature.

The main real difference is that the higher price gives you a 800mhz core overclock vs the more standard 732.

For my part, I don't like the coolers because they leave a lot of heated air in the case which heats up both the gpu and cpu.

My suggestion as a compromise is the EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR which is $330 after rebate. It is clocked at 797 with a nice direct exhaust cooler.
Good company reputation too and a lifetime warranty vs. 3 years for galaxy.
