Question New soundcard?

I currently have an Audigy LS, and was wondering if I should make the upgrade to a Audigy 2 ZS? I hear some people can't really tell the difference in sound quality and some can. I know the LS is an old card but I really dont use my speakers that much, and I just want to know if the upgrade is worth it.

Thanks.

If you don't use your speakers much, then don't upgrade. Audigy is an older card, but there is nothing wrong with it.

Yeah, upgrade. Why not. Pick up an Audigy 2 ZS OEM version from newegg.com for a mere $71.00

My audigy is a little better than onboard...I think I will hold off though.
