you want a faster GPU processor speed than memory but, you can also oc them if it is too slow

They are both important. You will need to explain in more detail what you are asking or the answers will be meaningless.

When looking at two cards one card will have a gpu of 585Mhz and memory clock speeds of 1890 Mhz. But another card will have 850 gpu clock speed but only 1200Mhz memrory clock speed which will be the best card

It depends much more on what card it is than the frequency of the core or memory. Tell us what specific cards you are looking at.

The HD 5770 or the GT240

The HD5770 is much better. Approximately twice as powerful.

You can't compare GPUs on only core clock and memory. Most GPU models have different architectures so only a side by side benchmark will show you which card is better. That is why when comparing cards you should read reviews by popular sites: Guru3D, AnandTech, Techpowerup, etc.

It is very simple, just do a google search: '<name of card here> Review'
