Unhappy Confused

Ok i was just browsing in the sale stuff and came across the exact same graphics card i have (Sapphire X700) and it says that GPU running at 400MHz, memory running at 500MHz but on my card my default settings are core - 400mhz and mem - 250mhz :s whats up with that? When i try and go that high my pc goes crazy.

the effective speed on your card is 500MHZ. DDR can transfer twice the data per clock cycle as SDRAM can.
