It would have been better if you could have provided links to your laptop choices.You also fail to mention what type of games as that will have a bearing on the GPU needed to play them.

Have you looked at these:

XPS 17

IMHO- spec for spec lap tops are much of a muchness- insofar they are assebled from parts from a narrow band of manufacturers of MoBo's Processors, screens etc and each comes in a different case and brand badge

Novatech I have dealt with over many years and put great store in the the products they offer and the after sales support.
