or if you just connect 5 speakers it'l be the same thing, as for the sound card X-Fi Elite Pro, or if your on a budget Xtreme Music, or if you game a lot I'd get the Fatal1ty

so its really loud then huh? that will be great for 6:30 in the morning when im gettin ready to go to school. only old people live around me so it will be fun grieving them lol. but here is one problem, how bad will it detract from the quality and everything if i cant have a right rear speaker? the set up i currently have (and no way to deviate from) doesnt support a right rear speaker.... so thats a bummer. and all the wires.. im going to hate that..

it can be set to 2.1, 4.1, 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1... so, you shouldnt have anything to worry about

any external sound card should support 7.1 considering most onboards support 7.1
