You can use other features of these plugins. If you look at W3 Total Cache, you’ll see many of features it offers. Does you really need all, hmmm… probably not. Minifaction is a thing that can be very useful. There is also database caching.
Basically, with eye maybe you will not see big improvement, but if configured rightly it can improve site stats like - Google PageInsight or ever your site rank on Google.
If you have time I would start correctly configuring minify, then see is there some recommendations for it. :)

PS, I will look at previous question soon, if you still have problem with it. ;)
