Is this CPU good enough for gaming (StartCraft II, DotA 2, LoL, L.A. Noire and MMOs)?
Or should I spend $100 more for Intel Ivy Bridge i7-3630QM (2.4-3.4Ghz Turbo) which need 45W instead of 35W and reduces battery life.

I think this one should be fine for almost every new game. Ofc. you won't be able to max every game but for LoL, Dota etc. Should be fine.
