Now to be more serious, I would also stick with a Class 10 card as the prices just keep getting better, because down load time of the photos is also a consideration (as well as there not being any limiting factor for write speeds for multiple shots). A fast USB 3 card reader (assuming your new computer has USB 3 ) will download the photos much quicker than from the camera (I would imagine), but that also applies to your CF cards too.

Even a good USB 2 reader will most likely be faster than the camera to download the photos & saves the camera from being knocked to the floor because someone trips over the cable.

After all of that, yes a faster card is a good idea.

Enjoy your EPL-3 for your significant birthday then.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
