    Hello i was thinking about getting a proper set of speakers for my comptuer instead of computer speakers, but i was wondering how this would work. Can i just plug my Surround sound card into a Amp and then plug the Speakers into that?
    Any help would be cool.

    You can wire up your sound card to your amp, just depends on what type of 'audio out' your card has. If it has digital audio out, you can plug that into one of your digital audio inputs either optical or coaxial. If your card only puts out stereo then run it into one of your analogue audio inputs and then make the necessary selection from your remote or front of amp :)

    You're welcome

    You can get an amp/reciever with a 5.1 input typically used for DVD Audio and SACD or dvd players with 5.1 rca out. This should work fine and the stereo jack to 2XRCA interconnects are easy to find. You'll need three of these.
