Default New Sound Card...Necessary?

I currently have a sound blaster live value card (came with dell), and I listen to music practically 24/7 on my computer. Im just wondering, would upgrading to a 24-bit sound card (sound blaster audigy) have much of a performance difference in my music, or would it not be noticable. Im using altec lansing Mx5021 for speakers. Thanks.

not really i don't listen to my music really loud and i am using onboard sound. If you have MP3's the higher quality of the soundcard and the speakers you get the more you will hear them crackle trust me MP3 are poor quality for music.
