Converting video/audio files, it makes quite a significant difference whether my cpu is running @ 3.4 or @ 4.4 Ghz. Overclocking a videocard usually has little to no real life effect IMHO. I usually only overclock my videocard for benchmarks unless I can feel the difference in a game. I play @ 1600x1200 with as much FSAA and AF I can get while maintaining playable framerates. Even at this resolution I can't honestly say that I can feel the difference between overclocked and stock videocard speed, except on a few rare occasions.
