    my 2 cents

    well could you post your system specs?
    anyways the most common way to overclock a video card is to higher the core clock and the memory clock but it builds up heat
    you can only push these so much, if you push the clocks too much your system will most likely lock up or get messup graphics in gameplay (artifacts) if you dont have adequate cooling<
    its not recommended to get cooling for it when instead you should look into buying a new one but it depends on what you play
    what games are you tryinng to play?

    well..

    overclocking would require an after market cooling solution yet the result would be minimal
    I would just upgrade to a card that will not overtax your power supply
