I'll be quite honest I have no idea what I'm doing.
 
I understand that my speakers need amplification as they're passive, and I also understand that I need a DAC to get an analog signal into my speakers.
 
Well, I have an Auzentech Forte 7.1 which serves as a DAC and also has a built in Headphone Amp through the 3.5mm output. 
 
I'm wondering if it's possible to connect my speakers to the sound card? I really just want to get them up and running, I've had them sitting around forever (Behringer Truth b2030p's). The problem is, it's a headphone amp and I really don't know if it's well suited for speakers.
 
I just want sound! I will buy a recieever / amp in the future when I have the money but for now I want to use them! 
 
 
 
If so, how would I do this? I need to buy cables and cut/connect them? Where do the speakers get power?

The Forte won't drive passive speakers by itself.  You will need an amplifier.
