Replacing a chain for the sake of upgrading is a waste of time and money. If you keep riding you'll need one soon enough as they wear quickly. You should change your chain more often to keep from wearing out your cassette (which is more expensive). I chain my chain 3 times for every one change of my cassette.
Your LBS has a chain wear measuring tool. It's cheap and I recommend getting one. I think they are about $15.00. I check my chain wear often and as soon as it gets close, I get a new chain.
