If you're getting ME3 as well, I'd say yes. Maybe even trade in ME2, see if you get a decent price for it.
The way stuff you do in the first has an impact on what happens in the last game is a nice touch and I would say is worth it IMO. Not just the main story line, but wandering round the citadel and hearing NPC's talk about stuff you'd done all the way back in ME1 makes it a much more believable universe.
It's dated, but still a great game in its own right.
