it may be the speakers themselves don't support 5.1; what speakers have you got?
- Aussie PC shops I like:
- cheaper in just about all aspects, especially on the big brands, what they lack is service (because they are so busy with lots of people there all the time looking for good deals)
- more parts available but a bit more expensive
- stock just about every part you can get, but only for parts you can't get at msy or cpl because they are more expensive
- good if you're looking for a laptop, and has some desktop PC parts too
