    Can restart pc from games ( when card was hot ) dont damage graphic card? I ask because i was have bluescreens from bad deamon tools. But now all is ok.

    BSOD won't damage hw. BSOD can corrupt data. In many cases for many people data is more important than the hardware. I dunno how it's for you.

    it can only corrupt the data written in your HDD, but a reinstall of the OS and it will be ok.
