Yep, only a 3.5mm jack pin (well, the size of any normal set of headphones, I don't know wether it's 3.5 but I suppose it is, sorry again I don't know the first thing about sound...)

Ok, thanks a lot, so I've just got to buy an external sound card, install it and that's it? And should I use my HDMI connection if possible, or just stick to the normal jack pin?
Anyway, thanks a lot for your help!


And yes of course I've got USB^^

I've got several USB sockets, don't worry^^ And is there any risk of the card not working with my computer, or should any external sound card do the job?
