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.
