Looking for gaming laptop under Rs 70,000, help

I want a gaming laptop with an i7 processor and at least 8GB of RAM under Rs 70,000. Please help.

The Samsung NP550P5C-S 05IN is one of the best budget 'gaming' laptops. This machine is equipped with a 2.4GHz Core i7 3630QM quad-core processor (with Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz), an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics processor that's capable of handling demanding games like Crysis 3 in medium settings, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB hard disk, JBL speakers, a Blu-ray drive and a 15.6-inch screen with 1600x900 pixels resolution. This machine costs around Rs 57,000.
Alternatively, there's the Lenovo Y500 and the HP Envy M6-1216 TX, both of which are powered by the 2.2GHz Core i7 3632QM quad-core processor (with Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz) that consumes lesser power than the 3630QM.

Like the Samsung machine, these notebooks are equipped with 8GB DDR3 RAM, only you wont get a Blu-ray drive or JBL speakers. Besides, the HP Envy runs an AMD Mobility Radeon HD 7670M graphic processor, which is a tad bit slower than the GT 650M.
The Y500 with its backlit keyboard costs around Rs 70,000 while the HP machine costs around Rs 65,000. We'd prefer the Samsung machine, but we suggest you visit a store to check for what you prefer in terms of build quality and keyboard.
