Alienware M14x Gaming Laptop http://www.dell.com/us/p/alienware-m14x-r2/pd.aspx
Those are the cheapest, real gaming laptops. Read this little review http://en.community.dell.com/dell-groups/dell_global_sales_training/b/weblog/archive/2011/11/23/inspiron-15r-alienware-m14x-and-xps-15.aspx

Or ASUS G46VW-BHI5N43 i7-3630QM http://www.amazon.com/G46VW-BHI5N43-i7-3630QM-3-4GHz-750GB-Windows/dp/B00AVZZS9M

Those are 2 best from cheap.

P.S. I am not authority in gaming laptops, if I had the money I would go with Digital Storm xm15 http://www.digitalstormonline.com/gaminglaptoploadxm15.asp?id=568669&price=%241%2C043 the same price, but quality, quality is great. But it is produced in USA, California, I don't know about international shipping.

That's a Clevo W25AEF. Clevo's do indeed have good build quality and offer the best bang for the buck, with MSI coming in a close second IMO.

i could buy the asus or alienware but there is a whole lot of tax that is added to the product in my country( for example the 1000$ price tag on the asus g46 can go up to 1500 because of it). Do you recommend that i buy a laptop at australia? i have a brother that is working there so is it cheaper to buy from there than in my country?

again sorry for my bad english

BTW i was looking for a laptop that can at least beat the performance of my desktop by a reasonable margin (9500 gt gpu with a pentium e5300 dual core at 2.66 GHz)and is it advisable if you overclock your laptop gpu and cpu?
Your English is good!

I don't see the harm in purchasing it in Australia really, except for the long transit time when it's shipped to you. It would be covered under Asus or Dell warranty, so if they have service centers in your country, then you won't need to ship it back to Australia for anything if something goes wrong.

I never advise overclocking, but of course you can do it and not harm the system. Just keep it within a safe margin if you decide to do it, say: within 10%. As long as you don't get a system with another Pentium (which the models you listed all offer i-series CPUs) and you at least one up the 9500 GT, you'll be fine. :)
