i dont know about the bios, but everytime I take my oc a little to far on the vid card, it just makes the screen really screwed up and doesnt change back so I just hard re-boot, that way windows doesnt save the settings. It just goes back to the last best setting.
my 2 cents

so ocing the vid card is done on the fly.
The best stages, IMO, to overclock a video card is to crank it up a little each time and then run 3DMarks a couple times. If everything looks good and the computer doesn't crash I add a bit more.
Disclaimer: I don't promise nothing bad can or will happen to the video card.
To answer your last question, video card overclocking is usually done from inside Windows/Linux and not the Bios.
