I have the 6950 and I play games like call of duty mw3 and battlefield 3.
I want to, I asked him what should be the settings in overdrive to run as the possible
better challenging games?

The default is: GPU clock = 800 from 840, memory clock = 1250 from 1325 and power control settings = 0% from 20%.

thanks

Overclocking depends on how efficient your pc's cooling is and other factors. If you try to change settings based on someone else's configuration, you might end up damaging your card permanently.

Leave the clock speeds at default and just slide the power control selector all the way to the right...+20. That's the best setting without using a third party overclocking tool.

I leave the gpu clock and memory clock as it is, and raises only the power control?

the choice for fans of the card?

If your temperatures are ok...leave it at default (automatic). If you use Gpu-z and see that your highest temperature during the game is high/hot...then enable the manual control and move the slider to about 40% and check the temperature again (during a game).
