sound quality with notebook/5.1 speakers

i have a dell i9300 with just a headphone/mic jack on the side and i also bought a turtle beach roadie external sound card. the speakers i want to buy are the creative g500. if i use the turtle beach 5.1cable with the green/orange/black 3.5mm jacks to the g500's 3 input connections with a short male-to-male 3.5mm cable connecting them would that give me decent sound quality still?

Re: sound quality with notebook/5.1 speakers

Is that an audio grade notebook? Make sure you get some AQ grossly overpriced computer audio grade pieces of wire. Do you really think.......you can hear what a piece of wire sounds like off a laptop. Does it matter..come on, think about it.....

Are you talking about a stereo mini jack as with most computer speakers and walkman style headphones?
