For the fx 5051 you do not need a sound card it has one within thats why it connects via usb.It comes with its own set of drivers for the same .So you can connect it through usb and the atp3 to the onboard sound card.So not only are you getting a sound card but a better sound system as well.

Viper, just get what you like and what fits your budget.

Now I am assuming as follows (after looking at my son's FX 6021 last night). The computer sound car sends out a analog signal to the subwoofer box of the 2.1 or 5.1 system. The amplifiers of the 3/6 speakers (3 for 2.1 and 6 for 5.1) are built into the sub box. Are we on the same page till here

After looking at the back of my son's computer I realised that you dont need a preamp or input selector.

Assuming the above is true all you need to do is connect the sound card to both systems 2.1 and 5.1 via a EP Y connector and use the ON/OFF switch of the 2 systems to dictate whcih system you want on. You can even have both systems running at the same time!

Revvedup has given a great suggestion in that all you really need is to swtich the "green channel" since one of your 2 systems is 2.1 and the other is 5.1.

Hope this helps.

You might need to re-install the drivers for your sound card. The CD that came with motherboard should contain them (if the sound card is the onboard type).

Also check to see that you've plugged them into the correct socket (and not the the line-in or Mic or something)
