on the site http://www.systemrequirementslab.com it says this about my processor: "You Have: 2.41 GHz Performance Rated at 3.80 GHz" does this mean my cpu is being over clocked or something, please could someone explain this to me. many thanks

It has to do with the way AMD rates their processors. They have a more effective way of tasking that makes the processor run programs faster than a comparable Intel machine. You can find out more at the AMD website.
