I'll let DJ-CHRIS handle this question. His advice on anything audio is solid. Buy what he tells you to.

An Audigy2 ZS. While it may be true, that M-Audio is better for music, it sucks for gaming. It only supports EAX 2.0, which none of any newer games use. Doom 3, UT2004, BF2, HL2, Unreal2, ALL use EAX 4.0.

Thanks for the help guys, I might get the ZS, but what do you guys think about this one Audigy 2 Value? ,, just wondering if the ZS is worth the extra $$.
