Default Sound Card

Do I need a sound card?

I am going to use my computer mainly for music and video, I am also going to have 5.1 surround sound.

Thanks

A lot of motherboards come with pretty good onboard sound with the S/PDIF outputs. If you connect your sound system via digital coaxial or optical then you will get quality sound from you 5.1 speakers.
