If they are home theater speakers, get a receiver.
Connect the sound card (computer) to the receiver via Toslink (S/PDIF).
The speakers get connected via speaker wire.
The Subwoofer gets connected via coaxial cable normally.

You are probably better off with a good sound card, but you don't need it per se'.
