Dual core verses fast single core

Progeny is about to depart for University and wants a new computer that is capable of sustaining games during his course as well as the usual work stuff!

HAs any one advice on whether the new dual cores are faster than stated speed (New games seem to need processors in excess of 3gig clock speed but dual cores are stated at 2.4)

I think the new core 2 duo is the best a man can get.
