Default Whats better, AC '97? or High Def Audio?

It looks like I got two options and not sure which one to go with. Any suggestions?

Also, while installing the F_Panel, Front panel header.

How do you know which was the pins go? they fit both ways.

So should the letters in the pins head up or down?

Um....it's kinda obvious.
AC '97 = Audio Codec 1997.
HD Audio = High Definition Audio.

Most motherboards now use HD Audio, well because it's newer.
