old diamondback fixup

I got a 2009 Diamondback sorrento sitting in my garage that i don't ride anymore. I was talking with a buddy tonight and he's planning on fixing up his old Trek 820 for a second bike. Got me to thinking about upgrading my Diamondback for more of a flat trail/urban bike whereas my Jamis is more MTB setup. I just wanted to ask is this frame worth doing anything with or is it not worth doing anything with? My BB on the Diamondback is loose so a BB/posible crank set would be in order. Just how worthy are these frames of putting parts on compared to higher end frames? Cheap Chinese garbage or are they better Tiawanese frames? Are they any better than Wal mart crap? I originally bought it at Dick's Sporting Goods.
