I used to use onboard sound and it did a very good job with a 5.1 system with those multicolored 1/8" jacks.

Then I moved to a receiver with a home theatre 7.1 setup and discovered that the optical out on my onboard audio only does stereo as confirmed by the board manufacturer.

Regrettably, I am now using a Soundblaster drop-in until I upgrade the whole system and find a board that supports 7.1 Dolby on optical.

Uh, forget optical. You want to go HDMI. Assuming your receiver supports HDMI or your buying a new one. Then you just need the video card, which you may already have since your reading Blue's News.
