Graphics vs RAM for Gaming Laptop


Right off the assembly line
I'm looking to buy a gaming laptop for around Rs. 80,000 (strict budget).
I've narrowed my choices down to-
1) HP Envy 15-k006tx (GTX 850M, RAM expandable up to 16GB)
2) Lenovo Y50-70 (GTX 860M, 8GB RAM)
3) Asus G551JK-DM053H (GTX 850M, RAM expandable up to 16GB)
I'm inclined towards the Y50 because of the better graphics card, but will 8GB RAM be enough? I need to be able to run the latest games for the next 4 years or so, although I don't mind keeping the settings or screen resolution low. (Also, I won't be running anything else while gaming.)

[Edit: I've heard a lot about the Y50's screen problems, but I don't think that would be a factor for me, I don't have an eye for those kinds of things :razz: . And I need something available in India or only in Indian online stores.]

Yeah DDR5 should be a minimum if you are investing that much on a laptop.
