Default Worth Upgrading From Audigy 2 ZS?

I currently have an Audigy 2 ZS installed in my current rig. I use it primarily for music. I do some light gaming on the side, but that's not my main concern.

I could honestly care less about gaming audio quality versus audio quality in general.

When I found this card in a box of parts I was just curious, so I asked about it and the owner knew nothing of it and said to take it for free, so I did. Once I had the thing installed in my rig and heard the quality I was amazed at the difference in quality versus the integrated audio on the ASUS M4A785-M.

Now, my question is, is it worth upgrading? I have a $60 budget and want to put it towards my computer. Sound quality, as stated, is my biggest concern. I don't want to drop $60 into a card if I won't notice much of a difference. I could always put the money aside and save up for a new video card or perhaps an SSD.


So is it?

Any input is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
