Windows 7: Will this External Sound Card give me true 5.1?

Will this External Sound Card give me true 5.1?

My Laptop has no high quality audio output jacks besides the headphone jack. I am looking to use this sound card to get 5.1 surround sound. I have a nice denon a/v receiver with spdif digital inputs. I would hook it up USB to my comp and then use the digital cable to hook it to the receiver. Would that work well?

In my opinion it should.
I would find the model number, and get some reviews on it to find out for sure.
