My System Specs

If you overclock the new system, then yes, you'd see some pretty big improvements in CPU-limited scenarios. I personally don't think an LGA1156 i7 setup is worth it considering the small additional cost to go LGA1366, so I think it's between an i5 system (quad-core of course) or a fully-fledged LGA1366 rig.
