Is it worth/necessary upgrading D3000 to D5000?

I've had the D3000 for about a month and I'm quite happy with some great photos it took. However, I'm curious about the D5000, and I can afford it right now if I sell/trade the D3000. I'm only concerned about image quality, not any other features. I hear the processor is the same as the D90 and D300, which should make some great shots right? Or is it just dumbed down and I really won't notice the difference between the D3000 and D5000? I have about 10 years photography experience and only ever worked with low end DSLRs (budget), but I do own some nice glass. I'll be using the camera for travel mostly. My only concern is the difference in image output quality between these two cameras and if it's worth getting the D5000 instead.
