New Wheels-Bontrager Race X Lite

Time for an upgrade. These were my original stock Bontrager Race wheels. After a few chain drops and sucks the rear spokes were pretty torn up, almost ready to snap.
Upgraded to the Bontrager Race X Lites. Stiffer (more responsive and efficient), more aerodynamic, lighter by 300 grams, more stable in cross winds, and faster. The web site says: "Flangeless Swiss made hubs give these wheels some serious sex appeal as well as strength."
Also got some new Continental 4000 tires.
Doesn't it look - -- --- ---- F A S T?

So what is the verdict? I was in a SUV vs bike, broke my collarbone and am in the market while I heal. Worth the upgrade? I was very happy with the races that I had--2 years and maybe 5000 miles.
