How much difference does the processor make to the frame rate while gaming?

I've shortlisted three laptops. All three have the Nvidia GT 740M. One of them has Intel i5 4200M, one has i5 4200U and the third has i5 3337U processor.
I checked and the 4200M is better than the 4200U which is better than the 3337U. But how much difference of frame rate will they give while playing latest games?

The GT 740M is almost always going to be the limiting factor in games, so the choice of processor won't matter much.

True while some games are more CPU limited than others most of them are going to be more GPU limited than CPU.
