Unless you are getting the new CPU for free or very close to that, it is not worth bothering with.

The Pentium G630 costs around $55, uses about half as much power and would be 3-4X as fast. Of course, you would then need a new motherboard (~$80) and RAM (~$40), which would be a much better way to spend than keeping a P4 space-heater alive.
