    Since it's an Apple Notebook I moved it to Apple Notebooks.

    I know you can get 5.1 if you use the optical output that is part of the headphone output. You need a TOSLINK cable. I will let someone else who has done this comment more.

    Ok so I found out that my speakers use an analog system where there are two cables, one is just for the stereo, and the other is for the other speakers, because it is like two stereo cables connected together, in this case, i think i do need a sound card. So, what do you guys and girls recommend?
