I have a EVGA X58 SLI motherboard. Apparently it supports 8 channel audio out of its rear connector plus this other adapter on the board called the Front Audio Connector which has some pins on the board that you would connect something to. Currently I am just using standard creative PC speakers with the Line-Out (green) plug in the back. A couple things: What is the difference between the 8 channel audio out the back and the Front Audio connector and how are they used? How do I choose which audio my computer is outputting? The 8 channel port on the rear says it does 2-Channel, 6-Channel, or 8-Channel. How do I pick which one it is doing? What hardware would I need (cabling, speakers, etc) to make the most out of the audio outputs available whether it be the HD audio or the 8-channel? Here is the motherboard manual for anyone who feels like helping: http://www.evga.com/support/manuals/132-BL-E758.pdf Yes I am a complete audio newb.
