How do I get 5.1 from a single 3.5mm Realtek stereo headphone jack?

There is no Digital Coaxial, There is no S/PSIF... There is nothing...

It's ASROCK FM2A88M Pro3+

If you're trying to watch movies the playback software usually has an option to simulate surround sound if the source is surround. For games: http://www.razerzone.com/surround- This can be used for both.

I'm sorry... The word "Headphone" was misleading. More info on my side is needed...
For reasons I won't go into... I've got the 5.1 bug... Must accomplish quest kinda' thing.

Bummed to notice my last Gaming PC I built, I did not account for Audio
Because I have always used (for many years) a USB 2.0 Sound Card (Line 6)

But Now... I want 5.1 for my gaming PC... and all it has in the form of an output is a Analog 3.5mm jack
I go into Realtek and of course I see 5.1 is offered.

I am not finding DAC's or HDMI Spliters or anything else of this sort that seem to be reputable.

Short of actually buying a Brand New HDMI Surround Sound Receiver... I don't want or need that.
