Overclocked GPUs are the same GPUs as regular ones (non-OC), only set to run at higher speeds. Often, these GPUs are coupled with improved/better cooling solutions to deal with the additional heat generated from the higher speeds.

Oc'ing gpu's shortens its life expectancy right? so if I buy the Oc ed one, the life expectancy is less compared to the non oc or still the same because of it's cooling solutions?

Not necessarily. It is really a matter of keeping the system properly cooled and with good, clean power (from the PSU). What is the price difference of the GPUs you are considering?

I would get the 2GB version (the cheaper is only 1GB). You can tweak the speed yourself easily.
