Which of these sound cards should I get?

They both appear the have the same chip, although the music version appears better build quality, the gamer version has a heat sink on the chip, the music version has an extra port, and is a larger card. Price is negligable, one is retail, one is oem. Here are the choices, place your bets now!

if its OEM (original equipment manufacturer) it means its been de-boxed, and is supos to be straight from the manufacturer, therefore they have taken out the middle man who packs the product and places it in its nice little box that gets killed coz of the stupid sticky tape crap they use to seal them ^_^, thefore you pay less for the product but only get the card, software and manules in a static bag. ie. how most ppl recive there HDD's, unless its a Maxtor <_<

edit: ooops lol forgot, im all for the X-Fi music, through to be honest ive never realy though about gaming sound :S my onboard have always been sefish.
