Thanks for the attention.

Not using AA doesn't bother me, my problem is not being able to put very high settings that change the models and textures of objects and characters, I don't like missing details you can't destinguish in lower setting. And the most impotant thing is the fluidity, I just can't play at less than 30 fps.

I think if you wait with it, prices of new hardware should go down. Or for the same price you can something even better. This is said without being up to date with the latest pc hardware.

Only get a Core i7 if you also plan to do other things, such as graphics design, 3D modeling or video-editing. If gaming is all you do, a Core i5 should be more than enough for you.

Actually while we are on the subject - can anyone advise a good setup in regards of saving the GPU when it's not really needed? I.e. modern Intel CPUs have an integrated GPU in them. What is a good way to disable extra Nvidia card from using any energy and wasting the fan while you use the Intel's GPU for regular desktop work, and to be used actually during the gaming only? Does it requires switching settings in the BIOS/UEFI, or you can do it at runtime?

However, in the Nvidia control panel you can select different performance modes which will lower the clock and fan speed of your GPU until an application needs it. There are also third party applications which give you more control over your GPU to fine tune it to your needs (such as EVGA Precision).

It's not entirely seamless, but kludges like Lucid Virtu come close to doing this, at a usually small performance penalty and a lot of confusion when software doesn't play nice with it.
With this style of solution, you connect only to the integrated GPU, and the discrete GPU's output is routed through the integrated GPU's framebuffer. Which GPU actually does the rendering is controlled by the software; when the discrete GPU isn't being used, it is commanded to idle.
Unfortunately, Virtu is specific to DirectX and does not support OpenGL. Optimus doesn't exclude OpenGL, but neither does it support it in any useful way.

You can easily OC i3770k to around 4.5-4.7Ghz using liquid cooling like H100 and run stable windows without getting bsod.
But GPU is more important, GTX 680 is pretty impressive. If you run Crysis 3 on ultra, I am pretty sure you will be able to run TW3 on high.
