is this a pre-built system if so try and find one that comes with a 3930k, as thats the best processor out now for your price level

With either of those CPUs, they will not be the main factor for gaming performance, both CPUs will perform exceptionaly well. You need to consider the GPU that is being used too. What GPU will the laptop have?

wait a minute, that 990x is a desktop processor, it would suck a laptop battery dry in minutes,

Neither are a good choice for gaming or for a laptop but the 990X is the better of the 2 for gaming.

Forgot to say what RAM you can use depends on the motherboard.

I think for gaming better you use an additional graphic card and dont impose much on the CPU.
