Well I doubt OC'ing your card won't immediatley damage your card. Just slowly boost performance until your certain that windows is running stable. Then hop in a hardware intensive game like UT2k4 or if you have it, Doom 3. Play it for an hour or so, if you start noticing glitches then that means you need to tone it down.
