    Default Sound Cards

    Ive hooked my PS3 up to my PC monitor and discovered that I didnt have OPtical input which is a requirement.

    Im looking at buying a bog standard sound card with optical input and am looking at -
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/TERRATEC-SIXPA...ayphotohosting

    I know its nothing fantastic but so long as it plays I couldnt care less. Ive read on other listings that the optical input is for recording. Anyone know whether this will input sound from the PS3 and teh output it back to my speakers or think of a better low cost solution. My motherboard is the MSI K9A Platinum - http://uk.msi.com/index.php?func=pro...t2_no=&cat3_no=
