5.1 surround off of motherboard audio?
I'm playing with the idea of using some tax-refund money to set up surround sound in my computer room for gaming purposes. But I don't want to spend a whole lot of money, since I have a decent headset and the main A/V setup is in the living room anyway. (And I'm not exactly a connoisseur of audio equipment anyway.)
I'm using a motherboard that has a Realtek sound chip, "Dolby Home Theater" listed as a feature, and a half-dozen jacks for speakers. Does it make any sense to run surround sound off of that? And if so, what cheap-but-not-too-cheap speakers should I look at?
