powered computer speakers in every room,all wired to one computer

Hey guys, I really need your advice. I have run wire thru the attic to 7 rooms, soldering the wire in each room with 1/8 inch female mini's that powered computer speakers are plugged into. The wires all come down one common wall behind my computer and will be wired in parallel and plugged into the sound card (also a 1/8 in mini). Remember, the sound card doesn't send alot of amps out, but then each set of powered computer speakers has a built in amp. Still, I believe that I need something like a distribution amp between the audio card and the wires that lead to all the rooms. Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced distribution amp that will get the job done? (I really think that this poor man's method of sending music throughout the house is the way to go. Why have dumb speakers that are so very expensive, being driven by a powerfull amp, when you can send micro amps and the speakers are smart, that is each has a built in amp)

Thanks for your help.
