Even if you do somehow incur slow down in fps, which is highly unlikely at that reso, the order of which things you can turn down are the following: AA -> shadows/lighting -> texture -> everything else. Generally speaking, those are the most taxing settings on fps. AF has virtually no hit on fps at all, even older cards will run at 16x AF no prob.
Thank you.

And when my comp starts to get outdated what should I focus in upgrading first?
