Hey, gents.

Getting a lappy. Strictly gaming/school. No video editing.

That said, go with the i7 3740 6MB cache or splurge and get the i7 3840 8MB cache. For 2MB more cache it is almost $200 more. Worth it?

I've been led to believe the i7 3740 6MB cache will be plenty fine...true?

Thanks!

That's not always true. These are for laptops, which means that unless one or both of them is a 'QM' chip, they're dual-core CPUs. You want a quad core for this sort of thing.
