But the i5 is having only 1 gb graphics and 4 gb ram where as i3 is having 2gb graphics and 8gb ram..

whats the actual benefit of i5 over i3 in real world not technically..

And could you please suggest a good cheap laptop for gaming ...

The main reason why I have suggested the i5 is due to the gpu and not the cpu. For normal usage an i3 is enough. But for gaming the i3 will struggle whereas the i5 has some chance.

As for the laptop, it will depend on budget, the type of games you want to play and the settings you wish to play them on.

The i5 and 7670m computer will perform better, you can add another 4gb of ram to that one easily. The i3 would outperform the i5 in this case, remember, i5s are dual cores in laptops, not quad cores, but the i5 computer has a better graphics card.
