Would upgrading from an on-board iGPU to a 760 allow more headroom for Dolphin?

To being with clarification, I really am using my GCN back-ups when running Dolphin.
I already have a legal hard-copy of any GCN game worth playing, and I use Dolphin specifically to drastically enhance the quality of these games.

That said, I've been running Dolphin, switching back and forth from 3.5 to 4.0.2, with an A10-6800k and the iGPU with it. For most games I do have a little bit of room to usually make it appear much nicer than the way it is designed to run, while sustaining 60FPS with very slight dips, rarely.

I am completely aware that the CPU is far from top of the line, and that higher tier Intel's are recommended for Dolphin, but I was mainly wondering if upgrading my GPU is going to allow me more room for possibly higher resolutions and AF, as long as my CPU isn't bottle-necking it too hard?

I would see for myself, but my 760 is en route, and about two days until delivery.

yes. expect higher framerates when rendering at a higher resolution. 1080p should be a breeze for you when it comes in.

Yep. The gpu will limit the resolution/aa while the cpu will limit the minimum/average frames.
