Default Game won't run on a 2.66 Ghz Quad Core?...

Hello all,

I just joined the forum. I recently purchased Empire Total War, and I've been looking at other games available through Steam's Web Store.

I've noticed that this game, XIII Century, and other strategy games, have processor requirements of 3.0 Ghz or more, with a dual core recommended.

I'm confused by this. I have an Intel Q9400 2.66 Ghz Quad Core processor and an Nvidia GTS 250 video card. How can this setup be too slow to run these games?

I would like to buy XIII Century and also Dawn of Discovery, but again they both have the 3.0 Ghz processor speed requirement.

I don't understand how the processor requirements work. Am I right that my processor is too slow to run XIII Century and Dawn of Discovery? How can this be? Is a dual core 3.0 Ghz dual core processor actually faster than a 2.66 Ghz quad core?

Thanks in advance,
