    guys, do you think I can upgrade from Geforce 680 GTX to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M with 4GB of GDDR5 ?

    Not unless you buy a new 2013 iMac.

    Yes, the GPU would be basically impossible to replace without breaking your computer - it's very hard to disassemble then put back together again and the software probably wouldn't recognise the upgrade - rendering you without a GPU - excuse the great pun there. ;)
