I was looking to get this Sony 5.1 system… to pair with my pc and my LG… I have a very capable video card but it only has DVI connections so what sound card should I get to make this work? Also will I need any additional cables or adapters to make this work?

you say you have a very capable video card. most video cards nowdays support "sound out via dvi."

all you would need then is a dvi to hdmi cable to run to the receiver box on the home theater sound system. of course this requires a sound system which has hdmi inputs (and not a system which only is good for using the included dvd/br player). check this.
