Heres a review that has a detailed section on memory settings.
Basically A, B, C, D are straps.
The 2.0/2.4/2.5/2.66 etc are multiplyers...ie you're runnign q9550 at 450fsb, with 2.5A strap your memory would be running at 900Mhz DDR2.

I'm not sure I get it so please bear with me and thank you for your help.

What's the point of using a certain strap? 200MHz, 266MHz, 333MHz, or 400MHz?

Well supposedly some straps allow for more stability or for decreased latency but thats not something that I noticed. I just OC by multiplier.
