Creative SB 5.1 or Creative AUDIGY 7.1 value?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so first one is $17 and second one is $29

i am just using cheap headphones but the sound coming for the onboard Audio (ALC889A) is low in volume and quality,

will upgrading from onbaord to one of these make any difference and which one should i go with considering my headphone setup?
