Thanks again for all your help, I really appreciate it.  I found the product page for the soundcard earlier, but I didn't see a link for the manual.   Ok cool, so I can use a mini-TOSLINK to TOSLINK and get all hooked up!  But since my card doesn't have Dolby Digital Live or DTS Connect, I still won't be gaming with true 5.1 then, correct?  For that I would actually need to purchase a new card with those features?

Hi all!  So I have http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/Home-Theater-Systems/HTS-GS1 which I use for my PS3, and have recently decided life would be easier if I used it for my PC as well.  My question is what sound card would be a good choice for using optical out?  I want to use TOSLINK I believe, although I'm not entirely sure.  Any Help would be greatly appreciated!   Edit:  The HTS-GS1 also has coaxial input, if that matters.  I'm so confused!   Edit...
