You can't do anything other than buy a new laptop.
Laptops are not like desktops each laptop model has a specific design so basically there is one and only one motherboard that will fit in your Toshiba Satellite C660-268... the one that Toshiba designed for it. Laptop upgrades are usually limited to RAM and a hard drive or SSD. Some laptops will allow you to upgrade the CPU, but that ability is slowly fading away because the trend has been moving towards CPUs soldered directly into the mother.
Laptops that relies solely on integrated graphics cannot be upgrade with a graphics chip since there is no where to install the chip. The vast majority of laptops with dedicated graphics cannot be upgraded since the GPU is soldered into the motherboard. Only specific gaming laptop models that costs at least $1,400 will have the capability of upgrading the GPU. The key word is "specific" since there are $2,000+ laptops that will not allow you to upgrade the GPU.
If money is not an issue, then just buy a new laptop with the CPU and GPU that you want because that is your only option.
