the Supreme FX is good but still onboard (it's like a slightly enhanced on-board) , it reported many drivers issues

The Audigy is good a bet old , PCI ,but still does the job well , you can install the Daniel K modded driver and turn it to Xtreme Muisc , and get the X-Fi tech for free

IMO the audigy us better in your case

thank you for answer, i just checked that i don't have pci slot, just pci-express, so in that case if it is worth i plan to buy sound card and speakers, or only speakers. Actually i have this onboard supremefx x-fi 2 and creative p580(5.1), plan to change for something good, around 200$. I'm not sure also what speakers will be better to buy 2.1 or 5.1, i dont watch movies, just music and games.

for 200$ you can make great upgrade :
1-get the Creative X-Fi Titanium if you game alot and espiceally BF BC2
Or get the Xonar DX better for music/movies
Both cards are 70-80$

2-you get the Klipach Pro media 2.1 those are less than 140$
We do not recommend 5.1 set unless you have 500$ to spend otherwise the 2.0 2.1 set is best for the bucks

thanks much for advice, sound card ok
are you sure to buy klipach pro media 2.1, they are wireless, aren't they cost more than non wireless speakers? And where to buy them, i don't see any shop i can buy these speakers (i live in poland), do you prefer any other speakers?
And as i seen klips costs 200$ on amazon

, but im very interested to buy them even if some friend from usa or canada will send me.
