Today, clock speeds in general don't matter. It's now a matter of how much instructions per clock cycle, that the processor can do, as well as how many cores there are, in the processor.

That's a little extreme, I just want something that can play nfs most wanted , GTA SA, Dawn of war, Halo and maybe some newer games like halo 2.
once I get a little more money though I will be adding a 8600GT to the computer to boost gaming preformance.

Honestly I don't know, but just search the processor's architectural specs.
