    it tells me there is a new version of wordpress
    but it recommends a backup.

    is it really necessary. or i want to upgrade quickly, should i just do it or how can i back up the data base more easliy.

    That depends. Sometimes an upgrade can collapse partway through. In worst case scenarios, a complete re-install might be necessary. How important is your current content? Do you run regular backups? If not, how do you feel about losing all of your content?
