Default Memory Latency

Can anyone give me an example of a good memory latency compared to a bad memory latency? I'm totally confused with this.

If it aint broke, fix it till it is.

MSI K8N Platinum
Athlon64 3500+ Skt. 939
Corsair TwinX 3200 1GB Dual Channel
2 80GB SATA 150 in Raid0
Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum
Sapphire ATI Radeon x850XT
Sony 48x12x48x16 CDRW/DVD Combo

Well, it kind of depends on the frequency at which it operates, but a generic examply might be:

2-2-2-5 = good
4-4-4-12 = bad
