Ran into a little error, this is from their website:

Specifications
Chipset ATI RADEON HD 3850
Engine clock 775MHz
Memory 512MB GDDR4
Memory clock 2250MHz (1125MHz DDR)
Memory interface 256-bit
Memory Bandwidth N/A
Stream Processors 320
Fillrate N/A
Bus Interface PCI Express x16
CrossfireX Compatible Yes

Notice the chipset?
Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 512MB GDDR4 PCI-E w/ Dual DVI, HDTV-Out, HDMI at Memory Express Computers

under the information center on my computer the chipset for my current card (ASUS) says ASUS EAH3870series
also the memory clock says 1126 MHz?
and engine clock 777?
