Oh, boy oh, boy ..the second time tonight to use "frontside bus" in a post.
Since others have taken on the practical aspect of your original post I have truncated it to just one question (as seen below).
The number following PC2-xxxx is approximately the peak transfer rate designed into the memory. See link for more technical information and for such interesting facts such as why PC-5300 is often called PC-5400. Or why it may be called DDR2-667 (C or D).
And on many machines the frontside bus is divided by the memory divider to arrive at the memory clock.
