Is this CPU speed enough?

I am completely new to gaming PCs and my buddy is selling an Alienware M17x R4 for $300. I Noticed it says it has a CPU speed of 2.7 GHZ but for the games I want to play such as pubg and fortnite for my wife, is this enough speed? When I review the specs online it says with turbo it has 3.6. I don't know if it comes with turbo or if its something I have to buy separately.. Thanks

Find out more about this computer. This a 2012 laptop.

You cannot simply say the computer is "2.7ghz".

If the computer is an Core i3 2.7ghz, the speed is pushing it.

If the computer is a Core i5, then maybe.

If the computer is a Core i7, find out if there is a "Q" in the model name.

To do so, the easiest way is to right-click the "my computer" or "PC" icon, and select "Properties". This will give you a quick clear glance of what's in the laptop.

Also try to find out what the graphics card is.

Nvidia something? AMD something?

Looks like the specifications are pretty decent. If it has 8GB RAM or more, it is a winner.

Before purchase, have the hard drive checked for errors. That is the remaining concern.

Most games will have a minimum and a recommended configuration of what you need.

Go to this site and compare what's in that laptop to what's needed in ratings it will give you some idea.

the speed in ghz does not really mean that much anymore it depends on what generation the CPU is.

A quad core i7 with hyperthread running at 2.7ghz + turbo boost is fine in any core i7 generation. This 8 virtual CPUs taking care of mutiple tasks, and works very well for games. The only possible bottleneck in this system is the dedicated CPU and hard drive. If OP wants to up this system, then an SSD is recommended.
