Default Which soundcard to buy for Z-5500?

Hello everyone. I have spent 7 days now looking for a proper soundcard and I simply can't decide..

Should it be ASUS Xonar products or Auzentech?

I am using my Z-5500 90% of the time for games, movies and music, while 10% is for gaming / music / talk when its needed.

I'm thinking about getting the ASUS Xonar D2X but god damn.. It's damn hard to decide.
Is there a friendly soul out there who can help me out on the final choice?

Thanks in advance !
