I'd like to get the most out of what I got. My mother board is an abit IP35 Pro
. And for speakers I have Creative Inspire P7800.
Coming out of the sub are all the outputs for center, sub, left & right (front, side and rear). The output cords that came with the speakers don't fully match the input for the onboard sound card.
I really don't want to spend $70+ on a sound card. Seems the onboad sound is rather descent. Sound I spend the $20-30 to get the cords that are missing. Seems that cords supplied with the speakers have 4 leads coming out of the sub and then they combine something into 3 leads going into the sound card.
Now when I go to mess around with the sound within windows I can't get anything to be produced out of the side speakers.
What would be my best option(s)?
I do appreciate the input!
