The Firebox ships with Cubase LE.  I like mine.  I can't comment about the E-MU 0404 USB, having never owned one or used one.

are you looking for a recording interface or just a box for playback purposes?

if you want real good vista32/64 drivers you might also have a look at the RME Fireface400.

watch out for mackie devices. their drivers are pure pain.

Echo AudioFire 2

I own one of these, and the drivers are top notch. Works perfectly in Vista x64.

If you had bothered to click the link I posted, you'd know the only difference between the AudiFire models, is the number of input/output ports..
Does Echo have better than Firebox ?

Sure, it has better.
