Do I need a sound card to get 5.1 with MSI H81M-P33 mobo?

I recently used this mobo in a build for my stepdad...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130731

I didn't notice until delivery today that it doesn't have the orange+black jacks for surround speakers, just the blue, pink, and green ports.

Do I need to buy a separate sound card in order to enable 5.1 surround sound, or can I make it work somehow with the blue, pink, and green ports?

Thanks,
-TG

    I will try to get the make/model for you, but pretty sure they are pretty standard 5.1 speakers and have the orange/black/green jacks.

    Actually, pretty sure the speakers are these or very similar.
