I will need a laptop for school and also want to game on it when I get home, games include Darksouls, Fallout:new vegas and League of Legends

I currently have a crappy intergrated geforce 510 desktop so it will be an upgrade either way.

option 1:
AMD A10-4600M
6GB RAM DDR3
AMD Radeon HD 7660G
1600x900
€499

option 2:
AMD A8-4500M
8GB RAM DDR3
Radeon HD 8750M
1366x768
€448

Please refrain from recommending anything else for $1500 I chose these 2 for a reason.
Thanks in advance.

If you want to game, option 2 is much better IMO. That GPU is around 25% better preformance than the first one. Its processor is obviously a little weaker, but that's less of a consideration when gaming. So long as its not so bad that it bottlenecks the GPU itself. Its too bad the screen res is lower, but at the same time you'll probably get better frame rates because you'll be playing at lower res. which works because the games you want to play are pretty demanding. I think the experience with the 8750m will be much better all around. Good luck on your purchase!

Can you provide the Model numbers for both laptops?

look at MSI, Asus. they are good gaming laptops with a reasonable price. But i suggest that you buy a casual laptop and good desktop. you will save more money that way and get better rigs

I really appreciate your help but I see this too often on these type of threads. I picked these two because of their local availability and prices, trust me I did my research I chose them for a reason. I would love to know which one of THESE TWO is the best. Thanks.

Yeah, I'd go with the ACER if you're sure its between these two. I don't see much of a comparison, I think the ACER is much better for your purposes. I guess you could be taking into account build quality, but specs wise that still doesn't change my opinion much, It seems like you're getting much better parts out of the ACER

sorry, I assume you've bought this thing already, but It is integrated... Personally I think there are much better laptops out there, but you didn't' want recommendations. That said though, AMD has much better integrated systems than Intel does, so it'll still work well for your needs, but better stuff could be had. I wouldn't turf it completely over that, becuase intergrated graphics have gotten much better then they used to be
