Hi All,

This is my first post on the forum.

I am looking for decent gaming + Budget laptop (primary use is gaming + browsing + movies)

Budget - 45k - 55k INR (approx 1000$)
Size 15-16 inches

I play games such as FIFA ,COD, DOTA, CS etc but i am not looking for high specs gaming.. i dont mind playing games at medium settings.

I am confused between the dependency of gaming performance on RAM , CPU and Graphics card. Really hoping to get some help on that.

I have shortlisted few -

Asus K53SM-SX010D Laptop (2nd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 750GB/ DOS/ 2GB Graph NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M)
Sony VAIO E15128CN Laptop (3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 750GB/ Win8/ 2GB Graph AMD Radeon HD 7650M)
Samsung NP350V5C-S07IN Laptop (3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 1 TB/ Win8/ 2GB Graph AMD Radeon HD 7670M)
Lenovo Ideapad Z580 (59-341341) Laptop (3rd Gen Ci5/ 6GB/ 750GB/ Win7 HB/ 2GB Graph Nvidia GT 630M)
Samsung NP550P5C-S04IN Laptop (3rd Gen Ci5/ 6GB/ 1 TB/ Win8/ 2GB Graph Nvidia GeForce GT 650M)
Samsung NP550P5C-S03IN Laptop (3rd Gen Ci7/ 8GB/ 1 TB/ Win8/ 2GB Graph Nvidia GeForce GT 650M)
Samsung NP350V5C-S06IN Laptop (3rd Gen Ci7/ 8GB/ 1TB/ Win7 HP/ 2GB Graph AMD Radeon HD 7670M)
Dell New Inspiron 15R SE Laptop (3rd Gen Ci5/ 4GB/ 1TB/ Win7 HP/ 2GB Graph AMD Radeon HD 7730M)

these are also present @ this link - http://www.flipkart.com/wishlist/abh2188-2430

From some reviews i came to know that samsung laptops have major heating problems.

I also wanted to know the following
- For low end graphic cards such as these would it matter if its 1gb or 2gb??
- is 3rd gen i7 an overkill on laptops?
- is 2nd gen i7 better than 3rd gen i5?
- is ram > 4GB overkill for playing games on laptop?

I am mostly planning to buy from www.flipkart.com

So which of the above laptops should i get or do you guys suggest something else?

Thanks,
Abhinav

Those games are too heavy for a super budgeted laptop. But there are several budget laptops like ASUS A53U-ES01 15.6-Inch Laptop that would possibly work. Just check it out,
