my build doesn't allow any surround sound so I'm wondering if i buy and install a sound card with the proper inputs would that make my speakers work as they should? Right now I have some Logitech ones that all work but it is simply split between all the speakers with only 2 channels.

this is my motherboard: https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/B150M-BAZOOKA-PLUS.html#hero-overview

and these are my speakers: https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Surround-Theater-Speaker-System/dp/B003VAK1FA/ref=pd_cp_147_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=ZK8RFDSA1QN0QCPKVWGY

if it would work could someone suggest a sound card? nothing too expensive just something to make this work easy

The back of your speaker:

indicates you can connect off analog 3.5mm connectors.

You don't need to buy a sound card since the instructions listed in page 20 and 21 of your motherboard manual indicate that you can use the front and rear panel connectors to get 7.1 channel audio out of your existing platform.
