Your system should easily handle it. 7900GTO's are extremely overclockable. People have reached 700Mhz core with stock cooling. Memory is meant to overclock nicely as well. I was going to get this card but I had a crossfire board so I’ve gone ATI in case I want to upgrade later.

Dude I won't recommend that you over-clock your graphic card, cause you would only be shortening it's life span ok.

really, so now it wont be 1 million hours anymore, just 900,000 right. LOL

get real, the card will be so dated by the time it "fails". Just dont overclock it too far.
