Default Sound Card Question

Hey all, I am currently looking at some sound cards for gaming, and I was most interested in these two:
Audigy 2 Value
Audigy 2 ZS
I'm just wondering, for those of you who know about sound cards, could you tell me if the Audigy ZS would be worth the extra $20 or should I just get the value card?


MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum
Athlon 64 3200+ Venice
EVGA 6800 GT
1 GIG OCZ EL PC 3200
OCZ Modstream 450W
WD 10k Raptor
XP Pro

ZS is better, and if you can afford it, get the gamer edition because it is the same as the ZS but it comes with a sh*tload of games.

so, umm, err yeah

The creative sound card supports EAX 4.0 Advanced HD, which when enabled, makes the sounds "echo", and sound like they really would in the current enviornment. It's really hard to explain, have a look here:
