Hi, my memory is pc3200 and my bus speed is at 133mhz (ddr266)
now i dont want to overclock my bus speed but is it possible to put down the timings of my memory since it is faster than my bus speed

First welcome to the forums !
Next step is to fill out your specs by clicking on this link so we can help you better.
If your motherboard allows you to set the frequency for your memory (or even a FSB:RAM divider) then yes you can tone down your memory speed to that of your processor.

when i put my memory speed the same as my bus speed will the can i narrow the timings a bit because they are running at a slower speed the nusual

Hmm.. I'm sorry I'm not familiar with this motherboard however you should look in your bios for something like "Advanced Settings or Features" and if/when you find it you should look for something that allows you to set your RAM frequency in MHz or for an option that allows you to set something called "FSB:RAM ratio or divider".

with my motherboard i can adjust each timing by half points and adjust the memory speed in steps or i can use profiles

I'm not sure I understood your first question/post.

If you were asking how to lower your memory frequency then that's what I was already talking about in my previous posts.

If, on the other hand, you were asking if it's ok to lower your memory frequency to that of your cpu then you should know that AMD systems get more performance when memory timings (CAS, RAS etc...) are tighter (meaning their numbers are smaller) than when you increase memory frequency. So I'd say you should lower your memory speed/frequency to match your cpu's as this will allow you to tighten memory timings further more (from something like 3-3-3-8 to 2.5-3-3-6 for example).
