"If not... Audigy 2 ZS is a great card."
I like the X-fi card better because of all of the new options creative gives you. The GUI interfaces are extremely sexy. Plus you have the ability to use 3 modes:
3.) Music Creation
There is a mode switcher. You can use the mode switcher to change between the modes depending on what you are doing. Example: When I play BF2 i use the game mode, which i have configured perfectly and sounds amazing. Then when I watch a DVD, I switch to Entertainment mode, which I use a completely different configuration... Use EAX, adjust bass/treble... etc...
So when you change what you're doing on your PC, you don't have to play around with audio settings every time... You just change the mode, where all of your settings are saved...
Music Creation I don't use that much, but it has a nice set of features.
