Orks and more Orks.. and Upgrades?

The Snotlings and I have played 40k (5th edition) some.  Not enough to say we are all that good, but it was enjoyable.  I mainly played an Ork army where the older Snotling played the Imperials.  I had a ton of minis from when I played 2nd ed, so Space Marines and Orks it was.

Now, the 7th edition is out.  It is worth getting?  What does it take to convert and army over?  Here is my 500 point Ork warband, Yes, I know, it could be better.  I'm just asking about conversion, not optimization.

Red Hand of Doom : 446 Points
HQ: Big Mek
1   Big Mek - Mek's TOols, Power Claw, Shoota/Rokkit Kombi-weapon

Fast Attack Warbikers
2  Warbikers - Choppa, Slugga
1  Biker Nob - Bosspole, Slugga, Big Choppa

Troops: Boyz
11 Boyz - Shootas
1  Boyz - Big Shoota
1  Boyz Nob - Slugga, Power Claw, Bosspole

Troops: Boyz
11 Boyz -  Slugga, Choppa
1  Boyz - Choppa, Rokkit Launcha
1  Boyz Nob - Slugga, Big Choppa, Bosspole
1  Trukk - Reinforced Ram, Wreckin' Ball, Big Shoota, Ramshackle

What would it look like under 7th edition?

I will admit, the Tyranids look rather awesome.  I may have to pick up some just to paint..
