I want to get new computer speakers, since my 2.0 emachine speakers are worn out and are pretty dull.

I want to get the Logitech 540 speakers http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ... but I have never hooked up 5.1channel speakers before and was just wondering if I am set to go to run them.

I don't have a sound card, just the on-board audio on the mobo.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...

it has Audio CODEC: ALC888S.

So am I set? or should I just stick with the speakers I got?

From the website you listed, this is what I see:

"Onboard audio •8 channel high-definition audio "

You're fine if you want to get a 5.1 surroud sound which is a 6 channel. So go ahead but don't annoy your neighbours :)

For the price, I don't think it would hurt. This is not for certain but you MAY have a better sound quality and (for sure) settings with that card.
