Need a sound card with red and white RCA?

I have an aux to RCA converter right now that connects to the front of my PC, but I want an RCA behind the case but the plugs I have right now are Red Green and blue and they won't work with my stereo. So I was wondering if there was a modern sound cards in the $50 range with RCA red and white outputs, or an Aux would be fine as well.

I would prolly just get another aux > rca converter cable to use at the back too, monoprice ftw! :D

Do all sound cards have aux outs? Or are there only specific models?

You should be able to use the regular speaker or 'phones output, they're all the same style 3.5mm connector on the cards/mobos I've seen.

What, so I'd have to get 2 and have one for left and one for right? I also have a center speaker, would that be taken into account as well?

No, there's plenty of 3.5mm > stereo rca cables available, but if you've got a surround set up (& I guess an a/v amp?) a card with an optical out might be better so you can get 5.1.

No surround, three left & three right speakers, center speaker, subwoofer, and an old stereo that only accepts red and white cables. So if I get a sound card i'd just plug the aux into the plug that corresponds to that cord and it will play through center left right and sub fine?
