CPU + GPU

Hi everyone,I'm considering getting a cpu and gpu from ebay

There's a used 8800 gt and http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/ says it has double the performance, but it's only got 128 shaders as opposed to the 4650 with 320 shaders, I sort of understand what shaders do but are my still better getting a used 8800 gt

How about a Intel Core 2 Duo E6750, 2.66 GHz, it's a 65mm that can clock to 3.8ghz. Does overclcoking a 65mm run hotter or is it harder to do? Should I stick with a new e3200 that can oc to 4ghz?

I was also wondering if buying overclocked cpu/gpu from ebay is a good idea, are they likely to have shorter lifespans because they have been overclocked?

thanks all

    That will depend on the care the original owner took. If he stayed within Intel's recommended voltage and temperature limits, nothing much out of the ordinary will happen to the chips.
