Depends on game, resolution/quality settings, and target frame rate.
If you are looking at something like 1440p60, the GPU is going to be the limiting factor, more often than not.
If you are looking for 1080p144, the opposite will be true.

4.4 is on the high side for a 920, but 4.2-4.3GHz out of the D0 stepping was common enough.
