Go to Creative.com and look up the X-Fi. A couple X-Fis come with them, and I know that if you get an Xtreme Music, you can buy the I/O accessory seperatly.
Thanks for the reply. I saw these ones but they are kinda expensive though and does not come with the spdif cable that would connect it from the soundcard to the drive thingy with all the connections. so you cant really use the optical or coaxial outputs. Dont even know where you can buy an SPDIF Cable that goes inside the case which are different from a regular optical cable.

I have a Spherex 5.1 System but I can only use either a red and white audio, optical or coaxial. It doesnt have that headphones like inputs. But has two optical and one coaxial inputs.
