Please excuse me for asking such noob question but what's the difference between the OC and non-OC edition of this card? Thanks.

one is factory overclocked, and will run slightly faster than the non overclocked version, and some will sport improved cooling solutions, and fancier overclock utilities and whatnot

The difference is the core clock speed of the graphics card. The higher the core clock, the higher performance of the card.

Basically it lets people buy graphics cards that are already overclocked, so you dont need to worry about overclocking them yourself.

not to mention their usually binned cpu's, which will perform better than their normal binned buddy's

alot of manufacturers will give em hyped up coolers as well to improve overclockability past there already set o/c

Thanks, if I have the Non-OC edition and overclock it myself using MSI Afterburner, can I achieve the same results?

Yes, more or less. You can still reach the same clock speed, but like nna2 mentioned, the OC version will have a custom cooling solution so the card will stay cooler.

and may be a better GPU chip, so it will be able to overclock better

I have the exactly same card (OC version) I can go to 1100 core 1375 memory at 1.050 and never goes past about 60 degrees in furmark or in... BF3 or any other demanding game. I can go to 1200+ but I have some heat issues in my PC case I think, it makes quite a lot of heat at that OC so I'll probably buy a new case or something. You will have to use TriXX not Msi afterburner since msi doesn't let you change voltage. And has a locked OC level.

you can unlock the overclock in afterburner, but it probably dosen't support the voltage regulator

If you OC it yourself, there generally isn't much difference. The OC'ed version might still OC slightly higher but that is not guaranteed either.
