Default Intel(R) core(TM)2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz

Is this a decent processor? I am trying to find a list of processors in order of how well they perform but I haven't had any luck lately. Does anybody know where this processor would fall? All I could find was this:

List of Intel microprocessors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

however, it is completely confusing.

I'll break it down rather quickly for you.

3770k/3570k/2500k era = now
920/980/750 era = yesteryear
Q9550/E8400 era = before that
Q6600/E6300-6400-6600 = first era Intel started making decent CPUs again.

Your CPU has the architecture that was popular around 2006/2007. It's capable of playing games paired with a decent GPU, but don't expect anything other than that.
