Hello,

I am building a computer for my mate on a budget and i chose these speakers
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?rb=7637764633&action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X3NwZWNpZmljYXRpb25z&product_uid=82267

Now i know they will work with the onboard sound the motherboard i am getting him BUT i have bad experiences with onboard sound in the past, so played it safe and got a seperate sound card. I chose: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=72316

Now without thinking i assumed they worked together (bad idea) so i have ordered them, and its only now i think they might not work together?? I’m sure there is some info on the page that would tell you but to me its all mumbo jumbo.

Thanks,

PS: Plese dont say "you shud have got this (enter soundcard/speaker system), cos its on a budget and i cant cancel the order.

You should have no problem with this setup. The only thing I see is you won’t get the full advantage of the audio card’s 7.1 surround capability with a 5.1 speaker setup.

Yeah, no probs. The only loss will be less speakers.
