Can someone help me figure this out? I have CCC over under graphics overdrive. there are a few circles on the top. They read activity, GPU clock, Memory clock... ext ext..

On the bottom there is a setting, "high performance GPU clock settings" it is set stock at 955MHz. When I run GPUz it shows the gpu clock running at 955MHz. The 2nd circle on the top,"GPU clock reads 500MHz. I really would like to know which one is correct and why?

Both are correct, that's why it says high performance settings. It means it's 955 when you're running games and lower when you're not. (This is meant to save energy.) GPU-Z always shows high performance clocks to avoid confusion, CCC shows actual, current clock speeds.

To get an actual reading with GPU-Z, use the sensors tab. You should be able to see the current clock speed there.
