The 2 CPU's are there because Hyperthreading is enabled - this is a program that allows the computer to function as if there were 2 separate CPU's (even though you've only got 1 CPU).

If you're looking at newer games, then it's not going to hold up for long - the newer games will outstrip the capabilities of the system very quickly.

only a few games out even nick the capbilities of a dual core processor, and unless you're running high end monitors, and video cards in SLI. I'd say for most games that have come out, you're fine, an for ones out now like bioshock and the like, they need powerful video cards too, and memory. I would say depending on what games you want to play on it, will determine a definite answer.
