Default Video Card clocks

So I was looking at the specs for a couple video cards and noticed there was a memory clock and a core clock. What is the difference and when you overclock a card is it one or the other or both? I was trying to figure out why these 3 cards were so different in price. Is it just because they are overclocked? And can the lower priced one be overclocked to match the other 2?

The non-overclocked versions, can overclock to match the other overclocked speeds. Companies just factory overclock others, to make extra money off newbs.
