Worth buying road tyres for Cyclocross bike?

Hi everyone,

After much researching (a lot of it spent on threads in here - so thank you contributors) I iust bought my first "proper" bike - a Cube Cross Race.

The only extra I bought were some SPD pedals, but I'm wondering whether I should add some slicker tyres before I collect it from the workshop. Looking through other threads, it seems there would be some benefit as I will be mainly commuting on roads, maybe some pavements and jumps up kerbs if needed. But exactly how much would I notice a speed increase? I'm on a tight budget, so if there is only a minimal gain I would rather spend the money on a decent saddle bag and some reflective clothing

Thanks in advance!
