Ineed a relatively cheap 5.1 channel sound card, no more than 50 dollars for the logitech z-640 speakers i picked up off craigslist.

https://images10.newegg.com/User-Manual/User_Manual_36-121-104.pdf

there is the manual, or if there is another way to hook it up to my computer without specifically getting a sound card i am all ears.I am also open for using speakers or an audio interface that uses RCA cables, but not entirely sure how to hook it up, just looking for new speakers and the best ones i found uses more than one cable to hook it all up properly.

How your motherboard audio can be configured depends on the motherboard. Check the manual and driver options for it.

The audio jacks sure look like they can be configured for 5.1 or you would only have mic in and headphone out on them instead of 5 different ones. Look though the audio software/driver options and read the manual.
