For me it was a matter of what I wanted my box to do.  I got a USB 
headset with mic to use with my Skype account.  My regular speakers play 
all my regular audio, (mp3's, streaming audio, ...) and Skype goes 
through the headset because I don't want my conversations blaring over 
my speakers.  Using USB for that was mostly a matter of 
cost/convienience  I got a decent headset for about the same cost as a 
comparable analog headset + soundcard, and I didn't have to open my box 
to add another soundcard.
