i am using a cheap throwaway graphics card for 2 month before i buy a new one. I have overclocked it quite harshly and i'm wandering if it overheats or dies will it damage any other component? I'm not bothered if the card just dies forever.

Yes it's possible. Although highly unlikely. If anything, you might even blow your PSU's graphics card power cable.

Your whole computer is more likely to die in a lightning strike.
