If it is superclocked does that mean it is already overclocked?

Yes, it's overclocked by the manufacturer that you are buying the board from.

You can still tweak it yourself though, most of those SC or OC versions come with software to fiddle with it.

EVGA's tool is called Precision,

Hmmm, the easiest way to check is to go and check the EVGA GTX 770 NO OC's clocks, and then check the GTX 770 Superclocked.

Does that mean i'm going to have to mess around with the voltage on my powersupply or is it the same ad installing a standard graphics card?

It would be the same as installing a non overclocked version.

What symsus said, it's the same as installing any card. The Precision OC tool is a piece of software that runs in windows. You don't have to use it at all, just install the card and the drivers and have fun!

If you do want to overclock further, the Precision tool lets you change the voltage and the clocks while in windows, and also lets you save profiles. This lets you have a "gaming" profile where you have the card maxed out, and then a "default" profile for when you're just doing regular stuff on your system.

Happy gaming!

Yes.
Graphics card vendors are wise to overclocking.
They bin their chips and select the best ones for their factory overclocked(AKA superclock) versions.
That gets them a bit more revenue.
I think you get fair value from the factory overclocked versions; the price premium is usually modest.

Where I don't think you get great value is from the aftermarket coolers.
