Default AMD 64 bit @ 2800 Help please

Right pardon my ignorance , I've got a 64 bit AMD which is running at 2800 with a 1.5 Gig RAM and 128 Meg Nvidia 6800 graphics all on a Gigabyte K8NS Pro motherboard. I tried to dload a demo of Half Life 2 lost coast and it said my computer was only a 1.8 GHz comp??? I've played F.E.A.R and that requires more than 1.8 minimum. My friend tells me that the gaming requirements are based on the old 32 bit systems. If thats the case then what is my computer equivalent too???? What can I run and what cant I run? I dont want to buy a game and then find the specs are too much for my comp. Obviously the 2800 doenst mean equivalent to 2.8 processor then ??

Anyone help me with this please?

Your processor runs at 1.8Ghz. Since its an AMD it runs at lower speeds than and Intel, and on most system requirements, they use the Intel speed as default. Your processor should compare to a 2.6-2.8Ghz Intel.
