You need to have at least a 460M or a 5750M to see any difference between those 4 processors in games. If the GPU is good enough then it's i7>i5>i3=C2D

Yes, dragosmp is completely correct, however, i would not suggest getting a laptop for gaming unless you really want to. You can get a gaming desktop that is much cheaper and more powerful. You will be hard pressed to find an i7 laptop under $1000.

i5 and i7 chips are also quad core, so Dragosmp's ranking is still correct.

They make dual core i7's for laptops. Just an FYI.

This. For a gaming laptop there is no mobile GPU that will be blocked by a dual core. If you are after better gaming look at the GPU first then the CPU.

Depends on the GPU. If you have a i7 920XM and a G220M, You won't be getting good FPS at all. Like Drago said, You would need a 460M+ to notice a difference.
