    Yeah you don't need any of that. You just need to split the cable a little for the XLR connectors to reach each speak then plug the headphone jack into the green input port on your PC.

    You dont need an amazing sound card unless your a real audiophile, you wont hear the difference between on-board and PCI soundcards.
