i've made my choice to go with one of these 3 CPUs and need help finding what one is best? I have an i5-4300M right now and I am using 96-98% cpu usage 100% of the time when running GTA V... what one do you think will work out? I currently get around 35 FPS but my CPU is maxed out.... i'm also looking to go with 12 GB ram soon so won't have any problems as i'm almost maxing my ram but I don't have money right now for 16 GB ram... cpu is more important and more expencive

you are going to replace the CPU of a notebook?  is that even worth it?

 

you also mentioned everything except the most important part, the graphics card

 I already have the laptop... it has a GT 730m if I upgrade to the same computer but newer model with a 7th gen intel cpu it would only get me to a GT 940MX... i'm not looking to gain much more except not max out my hardware 100% of the time


I got a laptop only because I move around so much much more then a desktop can provide in portability... my desktop would just sit unused if I got a desktop

Are you sure you are not making excuses for using a laptop? I honestly don't understand what you mean when you say your desktop would "sit unused".

 

Certainly you game at home, right? I mean, one could game at Starbucks, but that is just as painfully non-ideal as watching a movie on a cellphone.

 

But again...you game at home, right? (Preferably in the dark and with intra-aural earphones...and also sitting 8 feet away from a 110" screen.)

I don't think there is a reason to do anything with your laptop CPU. 

Look here: 4610M vs 4300M

 

You can do similar comparisons with other CPU's you have suggested above, but results are going to be pretty much the same. The only advantage of i7 vs i5 in your case is streaming capabilities, otherwise it won't make your gaming experience better. And it looks like you have already maxed out your hardware.
