SB audigy 2 VS audigy 2 ZS

i just ordered a set of logitech Z560. i am now using sb live! so i guess it's time to upgrade my sound card. i did a little research and found that the audigy2 line would pair my new speakers well(wouldnt it?). my question is: what's the difference between these two cards. and also what's the difference between this and this ? they both audigy2 but have difference connectors. thanks.

edit: sorry, i meant audigy2 ZS and not LS.

The OEM version of the Audigy will come without a nice box and manual, not a huge problem unless you want the diagram for plugging in your speakers. I'm not sure what the difference is between the regular and LS versions of the Audigy 2, but by the looks of it the LS is replacing the regular version. The original Audigy 2 isn't even listed on the Creative site.

The ZS seems to have slightly better performance. If your getting it from newegg, I suggest getting the ZS retail, that way you won't have to pay for shipping unlike audigy2 oem.
