What usb sound card should i buy for a laptop doing audio processing?

I'm looking to buy a USB sound card for my laptop because i am doing audio processing and normalization for a video game via adobe audition and i was wondering what would work best?
i have looked at these cards so far:

-ASUS Xonar U3
-Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D THX USB
-Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 Pro USB
-Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Go! Pro USB

but i dont really know the difference between them beside price (looking to spend under $100)
any input will help.

Thanks

    get a professional recording card like prosonus, focusrite, or m-audio
  2. and check for digital outs and ins, especially spdif for stereo and, possibly lightpipe, if you need a lot of channels in and out digitally
  3. do they make professional cards that are usb? and im going to be running the audio out to my headphones as of right now thru the card because my 5.1s are currently in use in another room
