Question Should Buying New Equipment be stressful

Hello ALL
I have this dilemma. At the end of last season I said to myself I'm buying new equipment next year. My Current gear is at least 15 years old. I got out of the sport for a while because of Kids and time. But now that my Kids are a little older I started back up last year. So in 2010 I start pricing out Futuras and Go's and I'm looking at about 2500 hundred for a package type deal. This is for all new everything. I thought it was going to be expensive but I'm having a hard time pulling the trigger. My question is will new gear give me a 2500 dollar bang on the water. My Current Board is 180 liters with a centerboard. I'm an intermediate sailor at best and I'm about 110KG. Sailing is mostly on inland lakes between 8 to 15 knots. I would appreciate any advice from someone who has been in my spot for buying new equipment and advice on new gear. I can afford it by I keep asking myself is it really worth it or should I be putting this money towards my kids education. Thanks
