Keep you live card. It doesn't matter what you get, they all suck.

Echo Fix: check 2nd cd, instructions are there.
Static/popping fix: Turn main volume down in FB (yay!!!!)
Crap spatial rendering: Turn off extension if you have enough processing power.
Low frame-rates: turn off sound, you're machine can't handle it.

IMO, for gaming, Audigy 1 OEM for US$51 is hard to beat. for a few more dollars, you can get the Aidugy 2. Only PCI soundcards that have an APU and can be run at full hardware acceleration with minimal cpu resources.
