My System Specs

Default 5.0 surround speakers for PC?

I have run into an opportunity to buy a Pioneer 5 speaker surround set, complete with the receiver. Just waiting on the model number to see what kinda connections are available.

Seeing as how I am not very audio savvy, I decided to post, in hope that you guys can help me understand what I can maybe look forward too. Right now, I am using a Logitech X-540 set with a Auzentech soundcard.

According to google and a few other sites that receiver is quite old. It doesn't even have any optical inputs or nothing.

I'm not sure what your intentions are.. but I say if this is for a PC save up some money and buy a decent 5.1 setup from the likes of Edifier.. otherwise you'll be piecing together a system that will cost a lot more.
