Default Which sound card

I was looking at these two mouses and was wondering which one is better. They both seem similar, but one is newer I guess. My final choice is between these two cards.

The Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4

or the


Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS

From what I've read, the ZS is a great card. I'm actually getting one myself

Any reason why you excluded the XFI?

I know that the sound quality is good on the Xfi, but I don't want to play the extra money. If I can get the ZS which has fairly good sound quality for less, then I'm going to go with that.
