USB is for flash drives, printers, etc.
Nothing good ever comes of using USB for sound or LAN

OP, M-Audio makes good cards as does Asus (Xonar series). Just don't
get anything from Creative. You would have more choice if you went PCI
instead of PCIe, and PCIe doesn't really have any particular benefits for
sound cards (unless you are building a small form-factor computer that
only has PCIe slots or something).

Actually, unless you are doing something special with audio (producing
music or DJing or something), it really makes sense to go with the
onboard sound chip. Via Envy24 chips are good, as are most that
conform to the Intel HDA spec (including the very common Realtek
chips that implement that spec (ALC88x and ALC1200)) .
