    Make your choice... if you already have a Audigy, and Network card go for the non-plus, but if you have ot buy the NIC and Audigy (or equivelent) card, then go for the plus

    I got an 8RDA+ cause I needed the NIC, and didn't want to spend cash on a soundcard. :D

    the + says 6.0, not 6.0 or 5.1, am i to assume it doesnt support a bass? i always thought the ".1" was the bass.

    or does it not have the center speaker in the back?

    5.1 Means five channels plus sub. ie 6 channels, which is what the 8RDA+ has :)
