I have an idea of how they work, but i see no differences between lower timings and higher timings. So im asking you guys.

i have 2x2 Ocz Sli ready ddr2-800mhz ram. And i have an overclocked q6600 at 2.8ghz, as well as an overclocked 8800gt 650/950.

Do these look like proper timings?

Looks relaxed to me. If you think the ram is capable, tighten the timings to 4-4-4-12 or lower. Do memtest prior to booting windows.

Those timings look like SPD timings. They should be fine, sanctioned by the manufacturer.
You won't see a great deal of difference with timings IMHO.

Check the SPD tab in CPU-Z if there are tighter timings for your memory speed.

+1 on checking the SPD tab in CPU-Z.
If you can drop it to CL4, you will see a 20% reduction in the time required to access data from the RAM (12.5ns to 10ns). Unfortunatly, this only equates to about a 1% increase in real world performance.
