    Ok. That is still a very unclear question but...

    For audio input/output.

    Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro External I/O Hub Front/Rear Panel Connectors:

    - Optical SPDIF In/Out

    Look at the bottom of this page: Click here.

    you should get a soundcard that has an optical connection.

    try one of these:
    Creative Labs Audigy 2
    Hercules Fortissimo 2 or Fortissimo 3

    and some Nvidia Nforce/Nforce2 motherboards (with onboard audio) come with optical spdif connections.

    i'm talking purely about optical outputs. optical inputs are a bit more rare and willy prolly cost you more. oh, and the average PC soundcard does not have a digital decoder-- it just sends a non-decoded digital signal to an external receiver, so you do need to have a separate digital decoder (i.e. a home theater receiver with an optical connection).
