Would this upgrade be worth it?

I have a htpc in bedroom running a Asus [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]P5N7A-VM with a Intel E5200.This is used only for recording off my DirecrtTV and watching live tv. No gaming and uses the built i graphics.I know this board has hdmi but I don't use it.

I currently have a
[/FONT]Biostar TA790GXE with a AMD [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Phenom II X4 945 laying around and thought maybe it may be worth wild to use it in my htpc instead of trying to sell it.Will be running W7 with WMC...You think it would be worth it?The htpc runs fine but is a little slow sometimes while loading windows or just tinkering around while running WMC.
