Default PS3 surround sound through computer sound card.

I have the Logitech Z5300e set of speakers. Right now I have my PS3 plugged into my computer monitor through hdmi. How can I receive surround sound through my speakers?

I plan on getting a sound card for my PC, is there a way to run my PS3's sound through the sound card and then to the speakers? If this is possible could you recommend some sound cards that would work for this.

Would I be able to plug in an optical cable from the console into this card and then plug my speakers into the card to receive sound from the console?

I'm pretty sure you can put optical in and headphone jack out from the same sound card.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

How do I connect it to my speakers from the headphone jack? I would need a different kind of cable to plug in the black/yellow/green cables from the speakers?
