so a 15.6" screen at like 1366X768 and a 144 core 555M would be damn good for gaming?

Indeed, although the 144 Core is only ~10% faster than the 96-core 555M, since the 96 Core has GDDR5 (vs. GDDR3 on the 144), and it's clocked about 20-25% higher. Of course the 144-Core should have more OC headroom. Your call, though I personally wouldn't spend much extra for the 144-Core option, because you'll soon get into 560M territory ($1000), and that blows away either version.

I don't recall anyone saying otherwise? It's 10% performance gain, not worth it for a $100+ price differential, when another $100 gets you a 460M/560M.

You can(could - the 560M Qosimo for $1000 on NE is sold out). There are also Asus G74 and G53 with 560M or 460M for $1000 occasionally. $1100 for a 560M, i5 and 17" Toshiba Qosimo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834214604

Also look through all these. The MSI Force 16F2 has a 570M, like $1050 with Windows 7 included. http://www.xoticpc.com/custom-gaming-laptops-notebooks-15416-laptops-ct-95_51_149.html
