Can I set up a workflow that sends assignment notifications only when the creating and assigned user are not the same?

I have created a workflow to replace the normal Case notification email

It is triggered when assigned_to is modified and sends an email to the new assigned user

This works but it also sends an email to yourself if you assign a case to yourself

How can I stop this happening?

To get round this I have create a new field that I populate in a before save  logichook
The workflow has been changed to send an email if the field is set to true

I'm hoping there is a better way of doing this just using workflows but can't see one :(
