"Onboard audio are ICH8R and ICH9"

ICH8R & ICH9 are Intel southbridge chips, not audio chips. The "R" in ICH8R means it supports RAID.

Sorry, am a little confused. Anyway, did some googling and found the actual integrated audios :

1. Realtek ALC888 8+2 Channel HD Audio (Onboard)

2. Realtek ALC662 6-Channel HD Audio (Onboard)

3. SupremeFX Audio card featuring ADI 1988B Codec - Came with Asus Commando Motherboard)
- Support Jack-Sensing, Enumeration, Multi-streaming and Jack-Retasking
- Coaxial / Optical S/PDIF out ports at back I/O
- ASUS Noise Filter
- DTS Connect

4. Creative Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum eX (SB0090) (PCI Card)

And my question is : I have 2 Audigy cards and thinking if i should make use of them to replace 2 of my 3 motherboards audio. (1-3 are all onboard audio and 4 is my audigy cards.)

Thanks
