Gaming is more about the graphics cards than anything else. A 200Mhz deficit in the processor speed is not going to make much difference, in fact it only comes into play when the graphics capabilities aren't good enough.

thanks, so in theory as long as the graphic card picks up the slack the quad core should run most games fine?
