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.
