i have seen two processors one is Intel® Core™ i7-4770K Processor and another is Intel® Core™ i7-4960HQ Processor, and the 4770 has approx each spec more than 4960 except memory bandwidth ie in case of 4770 is 25.6 and other has 76.8.

how will it matter if i want to make a pc for animation and gaming stuff?

Hmmmm, I haven't seen that i7 4960HQ. In any case, the wider the bandwidth, the more Data that can be passed. The best way to think of it is as a pipe. A 6"" pipe will more faster than a 3" pipe. That i7 4960HQ is a Mobile processor and a horse.

would i see any frame skipping, or rendering time? or it will just take time in loading the game

That would depend on the GPU in the Laptop. The processor bandwidth is huge and not a problem.
