Nod to the benchmarks.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / February 15, 2013 11:31 PM PST

Find notebookcheck and see if they did benchmarks. We know the CPU won't factor much into the gaming speed. Why?

"Our tests demonstrate fairly little difference between a $225 LGA 1155 Core i5-2500K and a $1000 LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X, even when three-way graphics card configurations are involved. It turns out that memory bandwidth and PCIe throughput don't hold back the performance of existing Sandy Bridge-based machines. "
