Its great upgrade from basic onboard audio for sound quality, and what makes it better upgrade from Creative Live! series cards is:

1.Its got Hardware Accelerated DSPs for EAX, etc something which the Live! lacks and thus it can give upto 10-20% boost in games(as also revealed in the review below) over onboard audio..
2. It can be made to run Audigy4 Software(which has notably better interface, AC3 Decoder and also enhances sound quality) using modified drivers(youp-pax)....
3.It also has Firewire Port

The Card is exactly same as the pic shown and here is the review for the same:
