i had to stay in my budget so i would like to overclock my gpu
i was not aware of this site till now. i have been on toms hardware hope i am at home now
i was told on that site to use ai suite ll
all i found in there was clocking for my cpu
i went into amd vision engine control centre
performance graphic overdrive
gpi clock setting to 850 mhz
memory settings to 1145 mhz
i read on some performance test done that
at 1.22v the sweet spot for this card is 940-950 mhz with memory at 1150 mhz
i would like to get my gpu to this point
can anyone help

I can't really speak for XFX's capabilities for its HD6850 ;), but you can try downloading GPU Tweak which should work with it. You can't do it with AI Suite as that's designed for the ASUS motherboard.

Currently it's in beta but it will be launched properly next week so there might be a few bugs in the existing version. Click on advanced mode in the bottom left-hand corner and you will get voltage tweaking options too. Play around with the software and learn it - it's got quite a few features!

Also I have read some great articles lately (yesterday) from Several Overclocking people that with a little change in the MSI Afterburner's configuration it with work with all cards...I have tried it on my cards which are EVGA's and it worked perfect...my 9800gtx+'s went up an additional bit and when I did my Wife's EVGA Geforce GT430 I got almost a 25% rise out of it...EVGA's own utility would only allow her's a 25mhx core and 50mhz memory rise where Afterburner gave me a 200mhz core and 1500mhz memory boost....Yes I know there nVidia cards but my new ATI/AMD's won't be in till April....so I couldn't test the Core Voltage Mod yet...sorry

The news section will certainly have an announcement.
