Default speakers`

if i get 5.1 speakers...but my sound card can only handle 2.1 or anything less than 5.1....will the speakers still work ?

What are onboard sound cards usually? 2.1...or what?

the speakers will work, but you won't get true surround sound. instead, the signal will be duplicated for the extra speakers
