hi guys. my dad recently bought me a 5.1/7.1 german made home speaker system. It comes with a sound amplifier with 4 input options (VCD, DVD, CD and AC-3....all being input). I want to hook this up to my computer but im having a hard time doing so because the manual is very breif. I am not sure what wires to use or softwares to download. My motherboard is the EVGA x58 using onboard sound. My motherboard has s/pdif output or input (im not sure, i think its output). Help would be appreciated!

then like astrallite has sed, use the SPDIF, and connect the AC-3 input to your SPDIF output on your motherboard, if your motherboard doesnt have, get a cheap soundcard, with SPDIF output.

The system doesnt come with a receiver. It comes with speakers and an AMP. im assuming you have to connect the amp to a receiver...In that case would i have to have the AMP and my PC both connected to the Receiver?

I dont think u understand. The system that my dad bought came with something called an Digital AV Power AMPLIFIER. in the manual, its telling me to hook this amp up to a DVD player/receiver from my old home theatre system. All i want to know is how to use this with my computer. On the back of the amp only gives me the following input options.....(DVD, CD, AC-3, and VCD).

i dont know how to do that. its simple. On the back of the amp, each input option has 2 holes (White and Red). Again the options are AC-3, DVD, CD, SVD.
