And that was my thought as well. I used to have this card installed in my old PC for years and it does sound great, but when I upgraded recently I just wasn't sure about putting this 4+ year old card in my new rig. To me, everything sounds the same currently as I am not someone who could pick out the subtle differences.
It will be almost no effort to install anyway. BTW, I am using a 5.1 Logitech speaker setup at my desk, so I am not using head phones. Not sure if that would make a difference in decision to use versus not using.
