Fork swap question

I currently have a Suntour XCM V3 29er fork and was thinking about upgrading. Found a Rock Shox XC32 for a good price and was wondering if this was a decent upgrade for an entry level rider?

I'd wait until you have a little more money to spend and try to stretch the budget a bit more to the next level. That upgrade is so small that it may not even be noticeable. I'm not all that familiar with 29er forks, but unless I'm mistaken, the XC32 is a really entry level fork, and probably not worth the upgrade.
