What's your budget and what connection's do you need. Creative sb audigy's and turtle beach are good places to start.

I have an audigy 2 as well (almost identical to that one) and it is awesome!!, I have never used the firewire. You can hook an unamplified headset directly to it and you can't turn it up all the way it would kill your ears. And it sounds crystall clear (when set up right)

You wont be dissapointed with the Audigy 2 ZS that you chose, very solid and nice sounding.
