How do these external soundcards compare to internal ones? Would it be better than my Audigy 2 ZS? Would driver support be better for a USB device?

I'm still in love with my Essence STX. It will take alot of persuading to make me change from that headphone card.

Does the Asus Xonar U7 fixed the numerous problems with the Xonar U3? I bought the very over price Asus Xonar 3 only to be very disappointed. Best usb sound card I own for gaming right now is the Creative X-Fi Pro, comes up short on base in the odd game but audio is very clear clean and crisp all ways. I own the Asus Xonar U3, it is over priced and big disappointment in the audio department, best thing I ever did was replace it.
