But Will Overclocking my 6950 Give me more Fps like 10 or 15 or more like 4 or 5 FPs?

Depends on the game.
Try a shader unlock and Overclock, that will give the best performance.

*shrug* I dunno, run Heaven 2.5 default settings, then run it again with an oc and compare your results.

Don't be timid, with your card. If you have voltage tweaking available the highest allowable is considered "safe" by the manufacturer, you aren't going to break it.

I've never seen a card die from artifacts or unstable clocks, they just crash the driver, or crash themselves and require a windows reboot.

Could be a driver issue. I also am not a big fan of memory OC. Did you do a 1 hour OCCT error check run?

yea and i passed the stabilty Test on Furmark i can run it again now, Also i heard that the 20% In CCC Keeps the Card Safe From Damaging When having the unlock some **** there i read upon. But If i Use AfterBurner and Set a Overclock it Unsets My Power Control on Ccc.

I think your current rig is good enough to wait another generation if your on a budget. I wouldn't hold your breath for Bulldozer. From the reports lately, it isn't look too good for AMD being able to take the performance crown.

If anything I would upgrade your monitor to 1080P.

Can't you change how much powertune effects you? I thought it should be on the lowest.. DO NOT USE FURMARK. It doesn't give error read outs. Use OCCT.
