Question Computer to Stereo? HELP PLEASE

I just got a phat stereo system that i want to use for my computer speakers. On the back of the stereo, we have two inputs (red and white) that are just like the ones that you plug your xbox cable into. I have a sound blaster Live digital 5.1 sound card. are there any cables that can use the stereo as speakers for my computer? my dollar tree speakers just don't cut it for my new computer. any help is appreciated.thanks in advance

you can buy a cable that on one side is lick a mic input and the other side it the red and white cables you speak of. this will not work for 5.1 but it will work just like hooking up a cd player to your stereo.

you get surround sound but not true 5.1. works great for music but cant get 5.1 effects from movies or the effects your sound card has to offer. but it works great and you do get sound out of your rear speakers.

i have two huge speakers sitting on my desk. when im playin bf2 and i get in the tank, the whole desk rumbles.ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh yes

i suggest this to anyone who is too poor for surround sound. if you have a stereo handy, just go to radio shack and spend 10 bucks and shizzam, super loud awesomeness
