Yes, it would be a dps upgrade for you to replace your i245 pants with the i232 T9 ones. Just loading you in RAWR real quick it shows that to be about a 100 dps upgrade for you.
Also, since you are talking about increasing dps and PVE then I'd replace the +resil enchants on the head and shoulders with their PVE counterparts. The Fetish of Volatile Power trinket that you have is really bad. Go get the Abyssal Rune from reg ToC; RAWR shows that as a 150 dps upgrade for you. Get your chest enchanted with +10 stats and replace the +10 stats gem that you have in that - mages should always gem runed for red slots, reckless for yellow slots, or purified for blue slots. Mostly you'll want to gem runed unless the socket bonus is good, like it is on your helm.
