Default SB Live! vs Audigy

I was wondering which was better, the sound blaster live, the audigy, or the audigy2. All i'll be using it for is gaming and listening to mp3s. I was wondering if i would hear a significant difference while listening to my mp3s with an audigy or audigy2, when compared with a sound blaster live. also, would i be better off with a cheaper sound card for what i use it for?

any input would be appreciated, thanks in advance

ive got a audigy and does the job. i think there is a small difference between the live and the audigy. but there is a bigger difference between the audigy and audigy 2. but unless u have a decent speaker setup the higher end card is useless.
