Aperture and Hardware Optimization

Hey guys! First off, this is not a question about Aperture VS Lightroom. This is also a question I don't think can be answered by reading prvious threads (I've tried looking) because I have a question about brand new specs.

I've used aperture for 2 years and generally love the program. However, I've amassed a sizable library and began shooting in RAW about a year ago. It's become increasingly impossible to work in Aperture on my 2012 Unibody MBP, 2.3 GHz i7, 4 GB RAM with sufficient disk space. The program freezes constantly and renders my machine super slow even after I force quit.

I just ordered a 27" iMac, 3.2 GHz i5, 24 GB RAM, 1TB fusion, 680MX. I want to know if this spec bump alone will ameliorate my issues, or if there are other measures I can take to start having a more efficient workflow. For example, is booting the Aperture library from a USB 3.0 or TB connected SSD going to make things better? 32GB instead of 24 GB RAM (seems excessive)?

Thanks for any advice! I'm hoping to get this aspect of my workflow ironed out while I'm waiting for my new sexy beast to arrive!
