6850 has lot headroom for OC as long as you feed with the right voltage.

Dont have crysis. But it works fine in witcher 2 and stalker (last 2). Also occt stable, see my sig link. That said for most of my gaming I leave it at the stock OC of 820/1100, feels plenty fast enough.

I've managed to get my 685 to 950 core and 1150 memory. It's very stable when folding 24/7 or running games such as battlefield: bad company 2 at 1080p, max settings.
