If being limited by your sample library and synths have always been an issue for you, then Komplete 7 will probably solve it. The simple truth is that Native Instruments includes an incredibly comprehensive bundle for a ridiculously low price that is an absolutely essential investment when it comes to getting bang for your buck. I admit, the price is a bit high, but if you like just a few of the included programs, you'll be coming close to or perhaps surpassing the price for the entire bundle anyway.

The most important part of Native Instruments Komplete 7 for me is, beyond any shadow of a doubt, Kontakt 4. It's a general program, and includes a bunch of samples of everything, but each of these samples quite simply rivals those that come in those dedicated programs that sell for just as much. So Kontakt 4 essentially replaces your DAW's soundbank. I especially find the strings to be very well implemented. If you're playing a single instrument, it is quite easy to tell that it's not real though, but only if you have a trained ear. Stick a bunch of them is a thick mix or even fully orchestrate something, and you have something that almost nobody will be able to tell came straight from a computer.

The other programs are also fantastic. I have enjoyed my time in Absynth immensely; even if you don't know what you're doing, you will not fail to find yourself lost in the sheer volume of things to do.

Battery was also impressive in the sense that it went beyond the typical "drum set" program, and did manage to include more esoteric sounds, like bombs, for example.

And finally, Guitar Rig did and always will surpass anything in its class, if you could put it in one.

The best advice I could give would be to stop reading reviews and start watching videos, listening to samples, and if you can, using it. I can't heap enough praise onto this bundle.
