I'm currently running an ASUS M4N98TD EVO motherboard with BIOS version 0803, and an AMD Phenom II x4 955 processor. Would an AMD FX 4170 be a compatible upgrade with my motherboard?

So I would need to get a motherboard that supports the newer processor. Any recommendations?

Is it worth the upgrade? What I mean is, will the 4170 show significant improvement over my older Phenom?

Not really if you can overclock the 955 to about 4GHz. Maybe money better spent on good cooling.
