go with i3-4030u+gt840m as the only difference between i3-4030u & i5-4200u is Turbo Boost feature which helps to improve performance by not more than 10% that too when used for very heavy single thread tasks,otherwise everything is exactly the same.Only they have locked the turbo boost on i3 so that they could sell the i5.Here's the proof of what i said http://ark.intel.com/compare/81018,75459 Note:this is the official intel website.and yes gt840m>gt740m.
