Guys I am going to buy a new 5.1 Speaker system soon.. But my current motherboard has 3x3.5mm jack ( 1xLine in,1xSpeaker Out, 1xMic in ).. This is the mobo..

My question is can i use 5.1 speaker system with my current motherboard? If the answer is "no", can i use a usb sound card instead?

This is what i am going to buy

Should work fine. Line out to the sub which has the amplifier and distributes it to the other speakers.

In most cases it is like that, then the sub has all the other connections. Documentation is not clear on this one.
