It depends on what you'll be using the system for. For basic games you should be fine. If you will be editing video the processor is going to hurt your render times.

Over all it should operate fine. However, you will see less performance in applications that are multithreaded and would take advantage of more than 2 cores. You will run into the most issues when trying to run several things at once as they will all contend for the 2 CPU's. For gaming, which I assume you do with your video card, will vary. Some games run just as well on a dual core as they do with a quad core. Others just far better with more cores. It will completely vary.

Is there anything specific you are questioning?
