It would be good enough, yes, but overclocking them would probably be a bit limited.
You can always run a divider though, so if you really want that extra speed, get some other sticks.

It makes a slight difference. I would say go for some non-value PC2-6400 (DDR2 800) instead.

you can run your memory on a divider. It will allow your CPU to be overclocked, and let your ram run on approximately the stock frequency. Overclocking value ram is a hell, dont try it Just use the divider

That Memory is fine for everyday use and gaming. Having 2GB however woul help overall system performance. However that aside you may only hit issues with that RAM when starting some heavier overclocks.

Back when the 945P and 955X chipsets came out, the big fuss was PQI DDR2 667 Turbo Kit, people were getting over 450fsb with them and as you can see, it's the ONLY PQI kit with 149 reviews whereas the others have barely any.

So, they're pretty good but don't expect massive OC from them, I'd say anywhere in the 450fsb max give or take.
