Nope, as a matter of fact screen tearing could make it look worse.

With AMD's "we don't want to play anymore" attitude on the high-end desktop CPU's, there is no incentive for Intel to rush these out anymore.
According to that chart haswell would come out in Q2 so why would intel even release IB-E Haswell should have better performance than it anyways, the only difference would be the PCI-E lanes which wouldn't make up for the slower CPU performance. I don't think intel's marketing is that dumb, it would be like releasing the 980x after the 2600k why would anyone spend more on a slower processor? For that reason I would call that chart fake but I guess you never know...

Yup, I guess we'll see. I hope I'm wrong because I'm itching to upgrade my 3930k

Anything over 60 fps won't be noticeable, but there could be tearing. Using the VSync option I've seen in most current games prevents this; it worked for me.

For just gaming at that res I would say 3820. That said, is there a reason why you are going for 2011 CPU and not 1155 (i7 3770)?

It is really according to the game some games are made to run at 30FPS.But at 60FPS you should not see any difference unless you have the show FPS and you think you see a difference.I was playing a game and I thought how smooth it was playing ,I thought it had to be doing at least over 100FPS and when I turned on the Show FPS it was doing around 45fps.I still don't understand if you are going to play at 1920 x 1080 why get the GTX-680 at $470 when you could get a GTX-670 for a $100 cheaper and it is only around 5% slower ,but I would get the Gigabyte GTX-670 4gig for around $420 plus it comes with two games value at $100,Borderland 2 and Assassin's Creed 3.

Really if your going to go with SLi 680's you should "justify" it with a monitor upgrade.....1080 is not going to challenge those 680's at all. At the very least consider 2560 x 1440 or 2560 x 1600 Res.
