Default Sound Blaster X-FI - Any good?

I have 2 pcs, the older one doesn't support my speakers so I thought the best way to solve it was to put my good pc's sound blaster Audigy in it and then buy a better sound card for my decent pc. However I was just wandering are the Sound Blaster X-FI cards any good? It seems they are a lot of money, but I'm not sure what for. So will an X-FI be better than my Audigy SE, will I notice any difference in sounds? Also, this is a gaming pc. Thanks for any help.

I was going to buy one of these.

But I saw a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Ex and got it for 28 with break out box, leads, the lot.

And I love it.

So the X-FI will be pretty damn good.
