Super is informal, meaning "grand" and often used in names:

The Super Bowl (American football game which chooses the best team of the year)

The Super Dome (Name of a large football stadium) etc
Super is frequently used in everyday speech. Some might say that it is over-used.

That was a super idea you had! They have a super sale at the shop today; there are extra special prices. Be careful of the soup - it is super hot.

Superb is used in more formal writing, meaning elegant, excellent, top quality, the best. It is used in everyday speech, but it is for much more serious occasions than "super". ...more
