In either case, they pass the same analog signal; the only difference being the PC standard carries two speaker channels per connection. Computerrock1 September 7, 2010 10:36:10 PM ^That's what I meant, sorry for the confusion Computerrock1 September 7, 2010 10:36:19 PM Best answer selected by Computerrock1. astrallite September 8, 2010 8:26:57 AM Well a soundcard with RCA outputs is pretty rare, so it seems an unlikely first assumption to think that was an option he could use. gamerk316 September 8, 2010 12:14:06 PM ^^ A few high end cards use RCA over AC97. Its easy enough to convert back and forth, so thats really not a significant barrier in any case.
