Setting up Media Center: Need Advice


I am setting up a Windows Media Center computer. I already have a full complement of Infinity surround sound speakers. I want to know if there is a sound card out there that will allow me to connect a set of standard speaker jacks to it without using an extra digital receiver.

There is not, to the best of my knowledge, a sound card that does this. There is a motherboard with a built in amp, though. It's the MSI-7411.

Get a Mac and run Firewire.

Oh yuck - did I just say that?

<---(Not a Mac fan, but knows the Mac will blow the PC away at audio/video)

Thanks TomServo - I have to clean the drool off my keyboard now!
