I recently bought a gigabyte GTX 760 and it comes with gigabyte's overclock guru.

I am playing games like shogun total war and supreme commander 2.

Do I need to overclock the card to achieve optimal gameplay and fps? If so what do I increase and by how much?

Overclocking would give you better gameplay, but its not really needed. It's your choice whether you want to or not really. But if you do overclock. I'd overclock the both the core and the memory speed or whatever, take it in small increments. Or have a target then fall back slowly.

Would I have to alter the voltage of the card?

depending on the model it probably came overclocked already and there isn't too much more you could do to it

I bought this one

It says its an oc edition but I'm not sure by how much. People have said that it needs to be OC but didn't specify what

that is already overclocked by about 100mhz you could get about another 100mhz out of it for the core clock and the memory clocks you hopefully can get up to 6800 MHz over 6000 reference

Overclocking won't bring you from 20 to 60 fps but I'm sure you're already getting 60 with a 760 and a 4670k. Overclocking is really just squeezing every last drop out of your gpu, but it's not as important as cpu overclocking. My 4670k is at 4.5 ghz and I hope yours is not at stock speeds, but overclocking gpu's is just an extra step to take. Good luck!

yeah I'm still trying to figure out OCing. I wanted to start with a Gpu before I tried a CPU, it seemed easier since gigabyte has a really nice software for it

Well I find CPU overclocking to be really easy, you just boot up to the BIOS and change the speed to the number you want. But then again the BIOS might seem a little intimidating to some people, compared to a software.

but don't you have to change the voltage and all that?

I suggest seeing how far you can take it without touching voltages first. Voltages only come in depending on how high you want your OC.

are you water cooled for your 4670k 4.5Ghz?
