Whether or not you choose to overclock it, the 460 will give you great performance. Oveclocking is very simple and all you need is an OCing software and some clue of how much to overclock.

MSI Afterburner is a great OCing tool that most people here use.

These Fermi's are good up to about 80C or higher, so you have plenty of room to OC it.
