2 Soundblaster cards...


OSNN Veteran Original
Hey, I was wondering what the main difference of the Soundblaster Audigy 2 vs Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS is?? I went to creatives site to check them out, but there is so much information, not sure what to look at....

Any help...

I just looked even more closely, and now I see that there are SB 2, SB 2 ZS, SB 2 ZS Gamer, etc, so many different ones!!!! I need to know which one is best for me, I do alot of gaming, but I listen to alot of music, and watch many many movies....which one is best for me????


My mom thinks I'm cool
i think one of the main differences between all these cards is the software that is bundled with it. I use to have a soundblaster live value, and now use my mobo's sound and I can't hear any difference between the two.

like, they have the platinum, and platinum pro, gamer edition, just ZS, and stuff. So you think there isnt really any sound/electronic differnce, just what they package it with.

they are all almost the same, I guess it's between Sound Blaster® Audigy® 2 ZS, Sound Blaster® Audigy® 2 ZS Platinum, Sound Blaster® Audigy® 2 ZS Platinum Pro. Which one is the cheapest lol???

Retail should come with a 1yr warranty, and all the extra software.

OEM is usually just the card and drivers. They cut out all the extra programs / stuff that come with it to cut down on costs, along with the warranty in some cases.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
