Default Good Cpu?

Are Pentium D 915/920s any good at playing games such as day of defeat and counterstrike? I have a nice vid card and was wondering if that CPU is any good?

it's definitely good enough for those games.
And games don't really want much from the cpu anymore, ram and vid card are more important.

the general rule is that if you buy a separate mobo you can oc. If you buy a prebuilt computer you can't. And yes, some do oc better than others.
