A sound card is a smaller card that goes into your motherboard If you open up your computer you will see white slots Those are PCI slots which you would have to connect your sound card You are going to have to buy a sound card and install it in the computer You can than hook up your speakers to the sound card Your new sound card is going to need drivers which come on the cd supplied with the sound card.
