The laptops you mentioned are really overpriced. Not Value-for-Money.
The GPU HD 7670M is a weak one for gaming.

And, service of Samsung is worst in laptops. Dell have much better service. It's what I've experienced.

If you want ultimate gaming laptop, its the one and only Lenovo Y510p:

Its MUCH MUCH better than the 70k HP Laptop that you mentioned.
i7-4700MQ & nVidia GT750 are excellent in gaming.

If you want something more budget friendly,

i7-4500U & AMD Radeon 8850M, Again great for gaming in its price.

Thanks for replying sir!!

Actually i cant go with anything more than Rs 55,000(Rs 60000 at last). The Hp laptop that i have mentioned is available at 61000 in market(flipkart has overpriced it) so i definitely cant go with the lenovo ideapad y510. further more i want to stick with i7 qm processors and not the ultrabook u series as it has much less cache & are only dual core. I need a quad core processor as i need to do a lot of heavy stuff.
Because of ur suggestion i have started to consider dell laptops over samsung. Earlier I thought that samsung's service centers are better than dell's. Please suggest me something under 60,000 with i7 qm processor and value for money kind of thing.

Yes, CPU is important, but I think you shouldn't compromise GPU, just for the sake of getting a better CPU. GPU is the deciding factor in gaming performance.

The Lenovo Y series offer outstanding VFM.
Keeping in mind of your requirements. I'd suggest you to look for Y500 (predecessor to Y510).
http://www.flipkart.com/lenovo-ideapad-y500-59-379647-l...

It has nVidia GT650M GPU which is quite powerful in gaming. And, an Intel i7 3***QM CPU, for 67k. I don't think you will get that combination at such a great price. I think you can get it cheaper in market.

And, plus, it has Ultrabay, in which you can add one of several compatible accesories (such as extra HDD, or even an extra GPU). You can use that in future for increasing performance.

Sir, the laptop has been discontinued in india it is not availble neither at flpkart nor at nehru palace. It was a good option but my bad it aint available anymore. Can u suggest any other laptop. Graphic card is secondary but CPU is primary for me as i am not a hardcore gamer but a casual one, the work is more imp.

OK. You can check out Lenovo Z500. It fulfils your CPU criteria, with a decent GPU (GT645M), which is much better than HD7670, HD8670 or GT630M which you will find in most of the laptops below 60k.
