How can anyone address your concerns without knowing which OS you are running and what you are trying to accomplish?
Easy! You could start by saying something like...
"I know! Its crazy that there are so many audio ports on a PC - and its especially weird that there is an audio port on video cards! Anyway each port suits a different application and it breaks down like this:
* This is why there is an audio port on video cards and this is why/when you should use it.
* This is why there is SPDIF on your sound card and why/when you should use it
* This is why there are 5.1-7.1 headphone jacks on a soundcard and this is why when you should use them.
* Yeah - built in PC amp is really cool and this is why/when you should use it"
Once we have that (the hardware options) sorted out we can talk about software.
