Without having listened to it, I'm guessing that sound card will probably be as good as a $20-30 DAC/AMP. So it's better than just running your headphones off of your PC's regular headphone out.
If you have a nice set of headphones, they may sound better with something more expensive. If you have to crank the volume up really high to drive your headphones, then they will definitely sound better with a nicer Amp.
