? I've owned roughly 65 video cards in the last several years. I have volt modded half a dozen of them, bios flashed several, heavily overclocked others, put several on water and even put a couple on LN2.

I've only had one card fail (a BFG) and that was a defect right out of the box.

Not really much of a worry...

the only way to stuff up a video card IMO is letting dust build up on over years.

When i was a youngun (3dfx voodoo), i didnt know better and never cleaned my pc. It still lasted 3 years tho!

Even if you push them with OC's its hard to fry them without being silly.
