    it depends on what outputs you PC has and whether your amp is a simple 2channel stereo one or a multichannel surround sound one.

    Internal Sound? PCI? is it 5.1, 2.1, 7.1?

    You could probably just use a standard mini jack from the Audio in/out for basic Stereo output.

    hi qunizzle,

    where does the sound come from in your PC - do you have a separate soundcard or is it the onboard sound from the motherboard? what sort of connectors does it have - analogue? digital?

    that amp is a multichannel one so could be fed with either analogue or digital sound, which is best depends on what you are listening to and where the sound comes from in your PC.

    we need some more info from you to answer your question

    you need to find out specifically what connectors your PC has. do you have a manual? if not take apicture of the back of it and post it on here.

    chances are that if the sound is just coming from your motherboard you'll be better off just sending a digital signal to the amp and letting it decode it, this may not be available to you though so we need to know what connections you have.
