I would get this sound card too:

DTS certified. There's a special going on right now for that card. I think it's a much better card than the regular Audigy 2 Value.

What is the difference between the 2 cards as far as performance?

The Gamers Edition like I have, has a higher sample rate than the Value Audigy 2. Higher is good. The Gamer's Edition is also THX and DTS certified which the Value does not have. I would go for the best one which is the "Creative Labs Audigy2 ZS GAMER Limited Edition".

Also get a good set of speakers too to take advantage of your surround capabilities and THX or DTS certified approved speakers. They cost more, but I'm sure a regular set of speaker like this,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...20#DetailSpecs

would be absolutely bad ass.

There's also the Platinum Pro Audigy 2 cards, but I don't see much difference compared to the Audigy 2 Gamer's Edition. Plus they cost way more.
