Is it bad or normal to get bsod when you overclock your new gpu for the first time and you dont know how far it can overclock? Also if u get bsod from overclocking but works after obviously does it ruin your system or anything in it?

Well, in general, it's bad to receive BSODs. It simply means something is wrong. If you're getting BSODs when overclocking, that means it is not stable. Bring it back down a few clocks in order to keep it stable and avoid constand BSODs. BSODs, especially at a consistent occurrence, is never a good thing. It is possible to damage your GPU because clearly your GPU is not capable of running the set overclock that you keep encountering BSODs with.
