Dude, why would a core 2 anything @ 2.4ghz struggle at any game? Let alone a quad core with a hella cache on it. Even mine at stock 2.4 is ubber fast. I have mine at 3.1ghz right now, and the thing is extremely satisfieing.
Plus, if you're a gamer, you're most likely looking forward to Crysis and UT3. Which both be able to use 4+ cores. Plus, as time goes along, more and more games will be able to take use of more then two cores, which is definetly going to help out immensly. So if anything, a quad core is going to last you longer then that E6850.
