Hello. I have built a cheap gaming rig, and it's done. All I need to know now is whether or not my motherboard supports 7.1 or 5.1 surround sound, and if it doesnt, how can I install a new sound card if I dont have another PCIe slot due to my GPU.

The motherboard I have is an Asus H81M-K, Micro-ATX, and I'm currently using on-board sound.
