The question is very simple, yes or no, I have a gtx 560 GPU that has been OC'd by palit, are these mostly reasonably over clocked, or should I go even further and OC it more?

Sorry again if question is dump. I just built my first computer and got interested in OCing
The point of overclocking a pre-overclocked card is so you can get even MORE performance out of it.

Definitely You can squeeze even more performance out of them. Arguably, the OCed GPUs are binned higher than vanilla GPUs (although many still have had great success with vanilla GPUs) and should reach even higher clocks still.

It's a bit like CPUs as well. In a sense, the i7 950 is "overclocked" higher than the i7 920 with its higher multi, but you wouldn't leave either at stock, would you?

Thread Starter 
well my temp while playing is 81 already.

I have 7 fans and good case, for example my cpu never passed 40c but the GPU needs to be at the lower PCI slot because of the MB (type that requires VGA switch card to allow 16x, otherwise it'll be 8x) and this GPU takes space of two regular GPU's so it almost hit's the bottom of the case.

With my last computer I could open window (-30c outside) and computer right in front of the window and they pretty much did +-0 interior temperature (it was so hot... hothot) but now I could freeze to death. so no, can't do 'nerd impro' in temp. management. (gpu is even 2 fan type, gtx 560)

Push it within reason. Watch your temperatures, and don't overvolt too much! You can get some awesome gains from Overclocking a GPU.

For instance, my gtx 460 stock at 720mhz runs now at 940mhz, with a 3dmark vantage score jump by just under double - from 8785 to 16164 points.
