Replacing chipboard subfloor on first floor level

While doing some electric works, the electrician pointed out and showed that I have chipboard as my subfloor on the entire first floor. That explained why it was creaky and felt very feeble while walking on it. Is it advisable to change the chipboard (hate it) and replace it with softwood pine floorboards or other alternatives ? If so, any idea how much it would be for fitting -> 4 rooms and a landing area -> around 40 sqm.
