Hi everyone!

I was going to buy a new graphics card and I found an
EVGA - GeForce 7800GS KO Super Overclocked

If a graphics card is super overclocked does that mean it works better but breaks more easily? Do I have to buy fans to cool it down to prevent it from breaking? Someone please help me.

Can you tell me the (pros) and cons about having a graphics card that is super overclocked please?

Thankyou in advance,
Emil.

If its already overclocked from the factory that way then its going to be fine. As they have warranties on the video card if something ever does happen to it. If its overclocked by them then the fans are going to be better or bigger to handle the extra heat. The heatsink on the card is going to be better also.

If its overclocked the video card will be slightly faster, not by a huge amount. Maybe a few percent faster in the final outcome. You just gain a little more performance and its usually worth paying a little extra for the overclocked version of a video card.
