Actually, if some of those columns are part of a primary/foreign key or an index, updating those columns can make a huge difference. Whatever DBMS you're using will have to either partially or completely reconstruct those index structures to account for the update.

I strongly recommend updating only those fields that you need. Aside from being a potential timesaver, it's just cleaner IMHO.
