Are you asking if your entire computer is unstable as a result of overclocking or if your video card is clocked too high? If the video card is clocked too high, it shouldnt have too much of an effect on your overall stability. You will just start seeing artifacts and whatnot.
To test the stability of your entire system run SuperPi at 32M, Prime 95 for as long as you can, or OCCT as long as you can. The longer you can run these, the more stable your system is

If your overclocking your video card either Aquamark03 will test it for some stability, and 3dMark05 will do a rather heavy test on it. And a video card with a very heavy overclock and enough artifacts will sometimes cause a BSOD.....
