A useful graph showing the breakdown of cost for a 1300 MWe PWR.

Halving the reactor system cost isn't much of a benefit. But increasing the efficiency by 1.5x has a big effect as it has influence on all costs.

In other words, it will pay to have a very efficient power conversion system, even if it will cost more, as savings in the rest of the plant weigh against a more expensive power conversion system.
