@thevariant2012: A core processes 'threads'. Lets say they threads are made by the programs you run. More cores means you can process more threads at a time. Most programs only use one thread though a lot of modern software is starting to take advantage of multiple threads.
A CPUs clock speed (the Ghz) tells you how fast the core can process that thread, put very simply. Some manufacturers and people will advertise a dual core 2ghz CPU as 4Ghz but that isn't how it works at all. You still need your processor to be fast. More cores just lets you do more stuff at the same time.
I hope I didn't put that too simply as to patronise you.
I'd worry more about the GPU since it's integrated. Check out (http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-6620G.54675.0.html) for an idea of how that card does with modern games including SWTOR. It looks like you should be able to run it at low settings with a mediocre framerate.
