You never know what you are buying either, so I'd keep that 800 in the bank, then theres the hastle of the changeover, shipping costs in and out, setting it up, what if the prop is wrong etc, almost half your budget could get blown on a new stainless prop (if thats what you use) straight away.
Then again, if your not happy with your rig, priorities will be different and maybe its worth a punt. But small gains cost a lot IMHO when it comes to speed !... maybe its worth waiting till the whole rig needs changing... just my humble opinion ofcourse
