Use a PC as a surround sound receiver

Is it possible to build a PC that I can use as a surround sound receiver?
Something where I could run the xbox and cable audio to the computer and then have my surround sound speakers hooked up to the PC?

  1. Not really. A receiver includes the amplifier, and no standard PC would have anything close to that kind of power output for speakers. Why not just buy a genuine receiver?
  2. well I wanted to rebuild my dvr b/c its old and I thought maybe i could make it an all in one entertainment device. I guess just buying a receiver is the best bet. Thanks
