I3-330 vs i5-430M

Hi, I'm planning to buy a laptop (dell/acer) soon. My usage is 50% multimedia & 50% gaming. The following specs fit in my budget

1) i3-330M, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 15.6" screen, 512MB graphics card & Win 7 Premium

2) i3-350M, 3GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 14" screen, 512MB graphics card & Win 7 Premium

3) i5-430M, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 15.6" screen, 512MB graphics card & Win 7 Premium

Is a higher clock speed better or more RAM?

Is i5-430M worth the extra bucks?
