The card, if too hot, with thermal throttle (downclock itself), so it's very unlikely you'll damage it unless you try running stupid settings on it. The card will begin artifacting when too hot so you'll know where your limits are.

i had the256mb agp esdition before my 7800gs, i was able to pus hthe core tp 605 and the mem to 650 "woithout vmod" thermal throttling didnt kick in, just keep your temps low, i got those speeds on cool air cooling.

i actually had two cards like it, i sold one and i kept my orogianl, sold it as 550/600. my will run 605 / 630"solid"
