Game manufacturers usually list a type of processor along with the frequency so you can make better comparisons. For instance, Half-Life 2: Lost Coast recommends a 2.9 Ghz Pentium 4 processor or better but it runs fine on my computer with a 2.26 Ghz Pentium M because my CPU is more efficient than a Pentium 4 (actually, just about everything is more efficient than a Pentium 4
) So a 2 Ghz Core 2 Duo would be more than powerful enough to run a game that recommends a 2.4 Ghz Pentium 4. However, if the game recommends a 2.4 Ghz Core 2 Duo (like Assassin's Creed, for instance), then you'd need to get a faster processor to run it optimally.
