you could have started a fresh on

the process for overclocking a gpu is the same for all cards. msi afterburner is your best bet, with kombuster as a stress tester.

head over to youtube for some vids, theyll help you out

also look at bios flushing. you could flush a 6950 to a 6970 bios with minimal effort giving grear performance gains. but that was a few years ago and in modern games those gains will dilute a little. have you considered getting a new card and selling your 6950?

I recently sold mine and I got more than 60% back of what I paid thanks to the popularity of mining!
I then got a gtx 770 and the difference is night and day

the card was given to me and can be over clocked which i like the card has made me big fan of AMD my 6950 runs normally at 800mHz but i have it maxed out as according to the Catalyst Control Center at 840 mHz

nope the Amd version will just be a reference card, meaning its factory stock, no aftermarket cooler or changes to the pcb
