iMac mid-2011 "upgrade" to new iMac worth it?

I have an mid-2011 21.5 iMac with the 2.7 ghz processor and 12GB of RAM.

I am considering "upgrading" to one of the newer 21.5 iMacs so the question (aside from the improved screen resolution), will I see a "significant" (meaning worth the investment) in speed/performance? The most intense programs I run on the Mac side are Aperture, Pixelmator and a few games. I also run Windows 8 under Parallels 8 - use for MS Office but also run several higher end Windows games.

Thanks - Steve
