I tried to find my motherboard # but couldn't find it. All i can show you is this: http://oi48.tinypic.com/14uxao8.jpg

I need to get optical out in one way or another. How can I do this? Can I get an addon type thing to my motherboard?

Any suggestions will help!

You will need to buy a sound card that has a toslink port on it. However you do have an HDMI port so you should be able to get digital audio that way if that is the goal.

Thanks for the answer but I need optical output because that is the only option on my home theater system. My PC doesnt have a PCI Express 16X slot. Only PCI Express 1X.

I don't know what your bufget is but here are two sound cards that are x1 slot and have the Toslink, the Creative would be the better card but both will do the job.
