Short answer is yes. If you installed a large number of packages an
upgrade may actually take longer than a new install. Do a Google
search for "upgrading Fedora Core 6 to Fedora 7" and see for yourself
if it is worth the trouble.

Please take a look at the fedoraproject wiki install notes:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DistributionUpgrades
and
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f8/en_US/sn-Installer.html#Upgrade-Related-Issues
