Yeah, 7050 is a lower end of the Nvidia 7000 series chipset.

The only reason you would need to upgrade is if that motherboard is not providing you enough resources(SATA, USB ports, memory slots, sound options, etc) for you to do your daily tasks or you want a substantial increase CPU speed and that board is limiting you.

If you have the money then a better motherboard can get that processor to 3.6ghz or more, depending on your cooling solution.

Without knowing what your uses for your system are(gaming, web surfing, video encoding, etc) and other components of your system it's hard to say definitively that you should upgrade or not.
