my rule of thumb is that video card oc'ing should be left for the benchmarks.. why shorten the life of your card???
You know, you shorten the lifespan of your CPU when you over clock it, too.
The point of over clocking isn't for long life, it's to increase the cost
erformance ratio. If you can over clock a 100$ chip to reach speeds of a 300$ chip, then you are saving 200$.
Most people will upgrade long before their CPU dies anyway.
