Windows Central Question

You all seem to know more than me when it comes to gaming laptops. I have been searching for a laptop for my son, I don’t have a lot of cash so my choices are a bit limited. These three laptops have a great price but I am not sure which one is best for gaming. I know he likes to play DOTA, which is more important, the graphics card or the CPU?
