Lower numbers = better. I dont really know what is considered really good with DDR2 but that seems alright.

DDR2 works fine with 5-5-5-15, obviously not the best, but it should work and it will give you a little more headroom. I would either run a P4 on a 1:1 ratio or a forward ratio like 2:3 or 5:6. Intels like more memory bandwidth.
