You get what you pay for. Onboard is free (well at the expense of your motherboard of course). XtremeMusic is 30 bucks and therefore better than onboard. Titanium is 100 bucks and therefore better than XtremeMusic.
The more you pay, the better it sounds. Of course, you need the right audio equipment to truly hear the differences. But yes, you should keep the Xtreme Music as it will clearly sound better than on board, even on your logitech speakers.
