I have a purchased a ASUS A7VX motherboard and it came with a sp/dif in & out module (gold plated.

What can I use this for?

I have a AIW 8500DV card coming any day now, and I believe that can use a sp/dif.

I know it has something to do with sound, but how do I go about connecting it up and do I need anything else.?

Are you sure of the motherboard ASUS doesn't make a board called the A7VX.

Anyway the spdif is used to pass DD/DTS audio to your receiver for decoding. You'll need a a 3.5mm mono plug (I presume its a 3.5mm) to RCA plug to connect it to your processor/receiver.

The A7V8X provides convenient connectivity to external home theater audio systems via an S/PDIF in/out module. Experience 5.1-channel surround sound and enhanced 3D audio while playing your favorite DVDs or games.

Think this will be electrical coax connection not optical.
