Hello,
I'm stuck with which Laptop to buy and was wondering if any could tell me which is best (there only about £20/$30 between the two)?

1st one is a Toshiba A660 640GB Intel Core i3 380M. 2.53GHz processor speed.
4GB DDR3 RAM and 640GB HDD and supposedly comes with a dedicated graphics card NVIDIA GeForce G 310M graphics card with 512MB memory.

2nd one is also a Toshiba ;L750-170 Laptop (Intel Core i5), 6GB, 750GB,

Graphics Type Shared
Graphics Chipset Intel HD graphics 3000
Intel Core™ i5 2430M (2.4 GHz)
Processor Bus Speed (MHz) 1333
HDD 750GB
Cache Memory 3MB

I'm hoping to play the odd FPS like Call of Duty etc, and some of the RPG's such as Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion/ Skyrim.
Anyone know which one they would choose, or would I be able to add a graphics card in the future to the L750-170?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! :)

Well in most laptops you can't upgrade the GPU and neither of those two are an exception. Don't expect to be able to run those games with either laptop it just isn't going to happen.
As for the GPU comparison resort to this chart. They are both very low on it.

If you do want to game on a laptop you will have to spend more money.
