Default gpu and memory clock difference

the maximum i got was about at 800/930 or i can get like 750/1030 depending the combination of these 2, So my question is What does the memory clock in the game do and what does Gpu clock do, does 1 increase framerate and the other increase the graphics quality because it seems like they feed of each other... if 1 increases the other decreases?
btw thx for the help

increasing the core clock will do more for your framerates than increasing the memory.

well increasing the memory clock increases the bandwidth, which really helps out at high resolutions or really high detail levels

depends on the card, bong my man.
overclocking the memory on a 7300gs aint gonna help you run that awesome 24" samsung monitor any better lol
but yes in theory you are definitely correct, especially in older cards (ie architecture) that have a high amount of memory.
