The Valhalla and Loki will work, you don't necessarily need the Loki though. Your PC already has a DAC in its sound card or on-board audio. You can connect the audio output of your PC to the amp and it will work fine. If you want to upgrade to the Loki DAC, it will connect to your PC via USB and act as the sound card instead of what you are currently using to output sound. If you chose a DAC with S/PDIF input instead of USB, then you would need a sound card with S/PDIF output.
