Area of usage: Gaming and 3d modeling.
Which of those would be the best Cpu-Gpu configuration for that purpose?

i7 1.73 Ghz and HD 5730
i7 1.73 Ghz and GT420M
i7 1.73 Ghz and GT335M
i5 2.40 Ghz and HD 5650

Thanks =)

i7 1.73 Ghz and HD 5730 I think is a clear winner (Notebook 5730 vs 5650 are very close as the 5730 mobility does not use ddr5)

the GT335M is next however you will have no DX11 support for future gaming features on that platform

The 5730 outperforms or matches benchmarks of both cards and offers DX11 support

With TurboBoost the I7 will perform as well as an i5 but I think the i7 is overkill nice but not necessary as your graphics is the performance pusher in games. If you benchmarked the same card on an i5 and an i7 gaming benchmarks wouldn't change much. Also the i7 is probably going to be hotter and chew through battery time faster....

How about HD5650? Is it also better than GT335 /GT 420?

Its betther than the 420 and in my opinion better that the GT335 because of the DX 11 support..

GT335 = Avg of 12006 in 3dmark o5

5650 = Avg 12518 or 4% better

so better scores with DX 11 support
