Is my audio system 5.1 (or higher) surround sound compatible?

  1. I'm just wondering if my audio system is 5.1(or higher) surround sound compatible

    using Everest, under audio i had listed
    Realtek ALC885/889A/890 @ Intel 82801HB ICH8 - High Definition Audio Controller [B-0] PCI
    and
    windows audio

    and if its not compatible what effects on a 5.1(or higher) surround sound will it have
    specifically: Medusa 5.1 Surround Sound Headset, and razer Megalodon(7.1) when it is released

    thanks in advanced

    Your surround sound will depend on the sound card you purchase.

    Realtek ALC885/889A/890 @ Intel 82801HB ICH8 - High Definition Audio Controller [B-0] PCIandwindows audio
    Is just the basic information from your mobo which everest found.
    When you start getting into 5.1 surround... software will then come into play so your equipment will work properly.
    5.1 SURROUND WILL ABSOLUTELY WORK FOR YOU.
    i HOPE THIS INFORMATION HELPED.
