The only thing a BSOD can do to damage your PC is cause data to be corrupted. Even if overclocking is the cause of your BSODs, there is no way for it to do any damage to a physical object.

He is exactly right. I think if u get a bsod relating to your graphics card then its already been damaged somehow. Only real physical damage u could do to our GPU is over clocking till it overheats and causing chip degredation by means of possibly too much volts via bios unlock... hope that helps.

They can corrupt data, but other than that, no.
