Kombustor for 5 minutes at least. If you get artifacts then your card is unstable. In Kombustor is should be obvious squares in the MSI picture. Also Unlock Overclocking in ATI Catalyst, it should be a picture that looks like a lock that you can click to unlock it. That or go into MSIAfterburner.cfg and change ATIUnofficialoverclocking to 1 and save then you should be able to OC it. At least that is what 5850 owners used to OC it to 1000 mhz.
