I am about to get my first laptop for games and work, I have a desktop I built and use, but I will be travelling for a while so I am picking up a laptop.

Now, the 7200U is 2 core 4 thread but the 7300HQ is a true quad core. If I take the quad core, I lose GPU performance but if I take the GTX 1050 I lose CPU performance.

Based on your knowledge, what one would provide me with better gaming?

Anything with the letter 'U' is a no-no. It means Ultra-low power—A.K.A. low-profile, weak CPU.

It is a laptop, all of the CPUs are low power and weak.
