I'm not familiar with Nishiki, but is there a chance that it is a "low-quality" bike akin to the "junk bikes" that one would find for sale at the various big box stores (like Huffy, for example)? If so, then you should expect a HUGE improvement with a new bike. OTOH, if the bike is of decent quality, then depending on how seasoned a rider you are, further improvements in parts and such would be doable, yet may quickly become pointless due to what economists call diminishing marginal utility. I would suggest going to a LBS and showing them your current bike, and test riding a couple of bikes they have to get a feel for the improvements you're looking for.
