I am just wondering what would perform better in gaming for a laptop, I know that the i7 can turbo mode to 2.8 GHZ but i have heard that it does this if it is working on only one thread and since most games now are multithreaded will the i7 still outperform the i5?

i7 720QM has a better price/performance ratio IMO because there are some games/apps which benefit from the extra 2 cores.
The only thing that i5 wins is the battery life and less heat
