Well, we can't say for sure because every card is different.

But if I'm not mistaken, that 7950 has a 6+8 pin (7970 PCB), so it should be able to overclock quite nicely, but again that depends on the card itself.

I am not looking for an extreme over clocking. Just like a 1000 to 1150 it clock speed nothing fancy.

Nobody can guarantee a overclock, but most 7950's can hit the clock's you stated.

agreed, you should be able to atleast reach 1100 on the core.
this is another decent card that overclocks quite well even on stock voltages

OP the HIS HD 7950 iceq x2 boost comes with a HD 7970 PCB with 8 + 6 pin power connectors. more power phases than reference HD 7950. its built for extreme overclocking. its compatible with HD 7970 full cover waterblocks. the his iceq x2 cooler is very good. here are the his hd 7950 iceq x2 boost card pics

http://www.legionhardware.com/articles_pages/his_7970_iceq_xsup2_ghz_edition_7950_iceq_xsup2_boost_clock,3.html

if you are not going to push this card really hard save the money and get the sapphire HD 7950 boost card .

http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?p=AT-7950BST

$10 OFF w/code:CHERY3110 ends 2/11. cost USD 289 (269 after rebate) + shipping. better price than newegg/amazon .

the sapphire HD 7950 boost card works very well. it has very good user reviews at newegg. look for older sapphire HD 7950 OC (900 mhz) reviews because it uses the same cooler design. but superbiiz has a better price. so get it from there.
