If the noise is at its worsed when you are turning the wheels at low speeds, then it is the CV joints. If the noise persists when driving in the straight line, then it might be a driveshaft bearing.
at low speed theres no noise, drive shaft bearing is this a major job?

to check the drive shaft yourself, jack up the correct side of the car, lock the steering towards that side as far as it will go, grab the drive shaft and give it a wobble, if it has more than a couple of mm of travel then go get it checked out.
