HP DV6 Quad would be nice:

Also this ASUS model has better VGA but slower CPU:

So if you are going to game with med-low settings the HP model is the way to go,it has a faster CPU too which helps you in CPU-intensive apps like 3D rendering etc.
But if you want to play games at good settings then ASUS model would be a better choice
