i tried my hand at overlocking my video card using the Nvidia program that is available for download. the mhz clock on my video card was set to 475, being overzealous i raised it to 600 mhz, which resulted in my monitor flickering for a minute. then there was no display. i knew then i should not have made that mistake, so i rebooted my system. on reboot i checked again and the mhz clock had been reset to 475 mhz to my relief, now my system freezes randomly and requires a reboot upon freezing.
i know my video card my be damaged, as expected. but could there be another problem with my system? i still get a display, but it now locks up. any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: after starting up again (letting it cool down), it runs fine as of now. what froze it was me running a benchmark in the nTune program provided by Nvidia, upon further research freezing during a benchmark is supposedly common...? not sure, but there doesnt seem to be any other damage or issues as of yet.
