how closely should the pan and burner diameters match?

Hi,

I'm thinking about getting a new saute pan because my current 3 qt one is a bit small and I tend to end up overfilling it. The current one is 9.5 inches across the base which fits my stovetop exactly. If I get one that is 11 inches in diameter, am I going to notice a big difference in the heating around the edge where the pan isn't directly over the burner, if I go with something like copper or aluminium?

Thanks.
