Default Help quick: Which of these 3 laptops is better? AMD/Intel?

So all these 3 laptops are the same price. I'm looking for gaming performance and that's it. One has intel, the other have AMD cpus. They all have different GPUs. So which one is best at gaming?

Newegg.com - TOSHIBA Satellite A305D-S6914 NoteBook AMD Turion X2 Ultra ZM-82(2.20GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 3GB Memory DDR2 800 320GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 - Laptops / Notebooks

Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AS6930-6942 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T6400(2.00GHz) 16" Wide XGA 4GB Memory DDR2 667 250GB HDD DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS - Laptops / Notebooks

Newegg.com - MSI GX630-028US NoteBook AMD Athlon X2 QL-62(2.00GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 4GB Memory 250GB HDD DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT - Laptops / Notebooks

I'm not a brand fanboy, I don't care if it's Toshiba or Acer or MSI, I would like them all the same. Also I'm not a brand fanboy when it comes to AMD/CPU, or ATI/Nvidia, so reserve bias and just tell me which one has more raw power.

All $799, which is better deal? I don't know much about notebook CPUs or GPUs, so please help. Thanks.

The MSI has a slower cpu but a better graphics card than the Acer so I would say the have pretty similar performance.

Personally I would get the MSI because it is a lot better brand.
