Optical, and USB? and both reproduce this interference? Maybe your ground is faulty?
Thanks for the reply, yes, I thought about the ground because I don't see how signal through Spdif could be noisy this way. Is there something I should do immediatly if it's the ground? How should I determine what component is faulty?

Do you mean one is on-board?
I have a dedicated sound card to speakers via Spdif (this connection is great for removing buzz when you have self-powered speakers) and another one for headphones via USB, I don't use onboard audio. Both sound cards are cheaper together than one sound card with two outputs and I can switch from headphones to speakers with a simple shortcut.
