Default sound cards

i want to get a sound card for my computer because i read on another thread that using the sound on the motherboard uses up cpu resources so i was looking at sound cards and i didnt really see any difference between them except the price so whats the difference?

well, obviously the last one is different than the top two, because it is Live! insted of Audigy, which people say is better, but for basic stuff I don't think there is really any difference in sound quality (and it's cheaper of course) but the top two... should be the same. I don't know. I'd go with the second one that actually says "Sound Blaster" on it... just a guess really.
