Question - gaming with Intel Core 2 Duo 6400 Tags: Core Intel Gaming Video Games Product Last response: January 11, 2007 12:21 AM in Video Games Share lucky0no January 10, 2007 10:45:06 AM I just purchased the Intel Core 2 Duo 6400 (2.13 GHZ) for a new computer I'm building. I'm building a $1400 gaming rig. Come to find out the minimun system requirments (CPU) for the game I want to play is 2.4 GHZ. Its an MMORPG (Vanguard) Does this mean I wont be able to play it without lag? I also have Radeon X1950PRO 256MB ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E1681... ) and 2 sticks of G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) System Memory http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E1682... Should I exchange the 6400 for a 2.4 GHZ when I get it, or do you think I will make do with no lag? I dont know anything about tweaking...but maybe that would be an option too? Would appreciate any and all advice.

The 2 Ghz Core 2 Duo is more than a little bit better than a 2.4 Ghz P4. What they SHOULD have said is 2.4 Ghz P4 or better. That would cover any Core 2 Duo as well. The processor you bought is one of the best on the market, it should be no problem at all. thegreat1 January 11, 2007 12:21:13 AM wtf is vangaurd?? didn't that come out like last year??? lol u can make do with a 800$ system.
