New iMac worth it? (Mac pro 2008 user)

Need some help, so tempted to buy the new iMac but not sure if its worth it. (been awhile since I've bought a new machine)

Here are my current specs:
Mac Pro 2008 (30" display near same res as the 27" iMac so no biggie there)
Processor 2 x 2.8 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Memory 10 GB 800 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB
Storage Crucial c300 SSD 128gb + 1TB Samsung 7200rpm

Heres what I'm looking to get:
iMac 27" LED Display 2560x1440 resolution
Processor 3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
Memory 24GB (2x4GB Apple, 2x8GB Expercom) 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR5
Storage 1TB Fusion Drive

So if anyone has any ideas in terms of the new cpu's and their performance vs the xeon's, same with the memory and graphics. Will I notice any difference? Form factor isn't really an issue. Blah decisions decisions...

Thanks for the help, appreciate it.
