Hi Tom's hardware,

I am building my own HTPC but I do not have much knowledge of how home theater systems work. My planned motherboard for this build is this:

What are my possibilities as far as connecting this to a home theater receiver and having full 5.1/7.1 surround sound?

I am only going to have my pc, cable, and perhaps an aux cable connected as inputs to my home theater receiver. What audio card would be best for me?

TYVM,
David

I'm relatively ignorant WRT HTPCs. Is the built in audio insufficient? I would think you would use the SPDIF or HDMI to provide audio to your receiver.

That's an older board, no? Should you be looking for something with a D510 or D525?
