  1. Hey I'm new here so I think this post is in the right spot. I just got a new dell studio 15 and I am installing my old games on it. I installed Assassin's creed on it and when I finished I got a notice saying that my cpu isn't good enough to run it it needs to run 1.9Ghz and mine runs 1.73. It seems to me that being a quad core and being able to overclock to 2 GHz there shouldn't be a problem. Any ideas?

    Assassins have a creed?

    It should run anyway. Did it refuse?

    Make sure your power settings aren't on balanced or power saver which reduces the multiplier on the cpu and gives you slower speeds.

    Is it just able to overclock at 2.0 ghz, or do you actually have it overclocked at that speed. If it is at that speed it should run, if not it will still ask you for the 1.9 ghz.
