The extra amps will get a faster cut, but the most important item is having the right and a sharpe blade. I have a 6.5 dewalt and can rip through that pretty quick, but I guess it is all relevant. Before you take a look and just go buy a 6.5 amp, take a look at the stroke difference and speed. If your not jumping up much, you will not see a difference.

The amps will help, but most jigs are made to make certain cuts. A cicular saw would be a lot better cutting a straight line. If your making another type of cut only a couple of times, I would use the jig saw you have. If your looking to make a lot of cuts over a longer period of time, I would upgrade.
