If you use applications that benefit from extra cores/threads then yes, if not, not likely.

You can use Pildriver FX chips in that M5A97 board of yours, I plan to do it. These boards aren't top of the line, and are 4+2 but they are good quality for a "budget" board without going crap quality. They can handle BD (though I wouldn't do a max OC on it) and PD is likely going to be more efficient if rumors are true (just check out Trinity reviews for a hint at whats to come, not the same, sure, but its paints a picture at least).

So yea, you can still keep the rig and do a drop in PD upgrade with little to worry about.
