    yeah shortly after i made the psot it clicked and i realised that mac pro is PCI-e

    ive got a dolby digital surround sound system and i cant connect it via optical i need some form of sound card. how can i do this? I think its stupid that you cant get soundcards for the mac pro. or thats its very hard too!
