Default audigy 4 vs. Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro

which one should i use, i am expecting shipment of the audigy 2 by mid week. i googled the audigy 2 and found decent results but want a user opinion of the card if possible. i bought from a friend in another forum for 35$ so i couldnt pass it up the lowest retail i could find was 150 dollars. i really like my audigy four but think this 2 series might really outperform it. opnions would be very helpful thanks........

I have the 2 ZS myself and I'm very happy with it... I have heard system with X-fi in them and truthfully, I can't tell much difference...

but in reading I have seen the same thing... the Audigy 2 ZS PLAT is better than the 4.
