    Default Audigy 2 ZS Sound Card Comparison Question

    Just found these 2 cards on sale and was wondering what differences there are between them, is it just bundled software?

    If you have the room in your case, I would get the Platinum. It has the exact same sound card as just the Audigy 2 ZS, but for that price, you get more features. That is a very good price for the Platinum as well.

    I don't know about you, but I just can't see myself spending $33 (and that's after a rebate)for one more Firewire port and a front panel. If it's worth it to you, go for the Platinum. Also, both those cards are priced much lower than they are on Newegg.

    I don't think platinum is worth it, unless your just swimming in money have you have to have a front panel that you would probably never use.

    Thanks guys, they both look like a good deal right now. But after your excellent feedback I think the basic card alone should be enough for me right now.
