You may not need either of them.
1) A Sound Blaster Sound Card For a desktop computer
If you are sure your computer has a good sound card, You don't need this.
If you have an onboard sound card, you might like to replace it with this, especially if you use your computer
for music (commentary).
2) A powered USB 2 Sound Device that attaches to a USB port on a laptop or a desktop computer.

Powered by an AC adaptor that plugs into the wall, it has a higher output. It has it's own software

you already have a network connection, you should not install the one that comes with this device (the Toshiba USB Multimedia Center).This device
is for windows 98 and XP. It does not work with Windows VISTA.
