Home speakers hookup to PC question

Hi Guys,

I have a set of cute, small, silver speakers that was my home 5.1 setup. I would like to use them on my 'puter. Can I hook them directly to my tower builtin soundcard or do I need an house amp in between the speakers and soundcard? I know my builtin audio supports surround sound.

I may actually be insane.

Depends if they're active speakers or not (ie: Have their own power source) If not then it's likely you'll need some form of amp between the computer and speakers.

plus you may need a digital to analog converter thingy. I have a really nice setup with a digital Y splitter (used to share sound on laptops?) so that both my hometheatre system and my pc speakers are connected. Lets me listen to radio and games at same time or provides a little boost to the surround sound =)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
