Default Is there much of a difference between these two sound crads besides Price?

Will I notice too much of a difference between these two sound cards with games and music besides the price?

The first one is basicly just an updated version....model?

Whether it makes a diff? I don't know, but the difference is less then $15 so I would go with the ZS
