Default VGA Overclocking??

I was just wondering, you'd overclock a CPU for more processing power to the pc right? Now, why would you overclock a video card? Does it make games run smoother? Because you overclock the VGA, would you need a special heatsink for the video card too?

Like you said you overclock a CPU for processing power and ur overclock a Graphics card for graphics power.
