Default I don't know how to hook up a home theater system to my computer?

I have an MSI Z68A-G43 (B3) it has on-board sound with 7.1, and i i will be getting Klipsch HD 300 Compact 5.1 High Definition Theater system. i don't know much about electronic hardware. I am wondering what cables, wires, etc. i will need to connect these speakers to my computer. im also wondering if i will need a receiver or an amp to do this because of the subwoofer.

Everything will be provided with your speakers. You won't need anything extra. Unless you're an audiophile.

Unless you are really into that type of thing, no. I have a 5.1 system myself. Everything plugs into the subwoofer, and a cord with 3 cables comes out of it, goes into your computer sound ports.

Actually, it looks like you do need an amp or receiver for those speakers.
