Short answer is
For gaming, the video-card is the key, more is better.
You should also use 4 gigs ram.
A nice dual-core proc will be just fine, at this point the cost of quad-mobile won't be worth it for the budget minded.
Also, realize, the bigger the vid-card, proc and ram, the "significantly" lower the batter time/life will be.
Also, expect this gaming laptop to be much heavier than other laptops.
"BIG NOTE" a gaming laptop will make a lot more heat, and laptops tend to have poor cooling, keep this in mind....
