So if I take a sapphire 7950 with boost up to 1200mhz on the core, does it still boost beyond that or am I effectively killing the boost? Or is the 1200mhz on the core people are referring the actual boost level?

I believe it will boost beyond that. I know it does with the Nvidia cards at least.

If I have a standard clock of 1050Mhz and a boost of 1150 and overclock by 50Mhz, the card will then hit 1200 under boost.

Edit.It appears that this is not the case with AMD.

I am pretty sure boost is completely disabled when overclocked, or otherwise it may cap at the old boost settings.

Boost is just a set number, e.g.:

850 regular, 950 boost.
NOT 850 regular, +100 boost

So if you set it to 900, then it will either be 900 or 950 under "boost", not 1000.

once you overclock past the max boost speed the boost is disabled. if you set clocks to 1200 mhz thats what it will run at .
