Get the X-Fi ExtremeMusic it's a better card.

Shop around though, you should be able to get it for much cheaper than the price from that site.

The first one you linked should only cost around $35. It is an OEM card and will not be supported by Creative.

To make a long story short, I got an OEM card and it was DOA. Creative took it back 2 times, then decided to tell me it wasnt under their warranty. They kept it past the 30 return period, so I couldnt return it to the place of purchase. I showed where they accepted the card twice, so they gave me a retail XtremeMusic (lucky for me).

Just get the Gamer. it is essentially the same card as the music, just a low profile card with software aimed at gamers.
