  1. Best answer
    The 740M is the faster of the two, but the I7 performs better. Both games you mentioned are more cpu dependent than gpu dependent, so I would opt for the I7 for the additional speed and cache.

  2. If your gaming needs are more casual, the gpu may not matter so much.
    For a better laptop experience, See if you can't manage a SSD instead of a hard drive. My strategy is to buy a laptop with the smallest hard drive and replace it with a ssd.
