Default Upgrading Sound

I was thinking about upgrading the sound on my pc. First of all i dont know if i should, if there would be a big difference.
On board 7.1 CH Intel High Definition Audio CODEC
Supports auto jack sensing and optical S/PDIF In/Out
Those are the specs of my integrated sound card. I was wondering if i should get something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102188

You will definately hear a big difference with the X-Fi including less CPU usage as well.
