I've bought a sound bar and realised it's an optical input connection, how can I plug this to my pc tower, as my monitor has no connections at all. would I need an optical to jack converter or something? thanks

Your motherboard back panel has an optical (Toslink) connection if it was made in the last 5-8 years. The Toslink (optical S/PDIF) connector looks like THIS the little gray trapdoor looking thing just left of center before the bright white square.

The cables cost less than $10 for a 6 foot model on Amazon like THIS ONE.
