Here is an example of 2 of the benefits a DSLR provides - all in the same shot. First, notice how the background is blurred out here? That's what I was referring to above - in this case a very extreme amount - a kit lens won't produce this result but you can get lenses that do. Secondly, this shot was taken at ISO 6400. Try that type of ISO with your current camera! Now, to be fair this shot was taken with a 5dIII - the camera you're considering doesn't have noise performance this good but still much better than your current camera.
