I've owned both usb and XLR.
Never get USB... yup you heard me... never get USB. I'm probably gonna get shit for it.... but entry level XLR are so much better then USB for the same price. And yes you'd need a simple audio interface with 48V of phantom power to run an XLR.
In terms of the 2 brands you have there.... AT2020 all the way.
blue are overpriced and overhyped (my opinion)
I would even go as far as to say... don't have the money for the entire kit? (XLR mic and interface) then wait and save up for it and don't buy a USB.
It is a shame to get a perfectly good mic to only bottleneck it to USB, don't be that guy.
