Default Is it possible to attach a PC to an amplifier to play music through speakers???

Hello, i'm having a party next week and intended to plug my pc into my plasma screen, so the windows media visualizations would play on that, whilst also connecting the PC to the amplifier that controls the surround speakers to play the music from my pc.

I have no problem getting the image on the plasma screen, it's a simple VGA cable job, like with a monitor. But i have no idea how to get the sound playing through the amp!

Any help appreciated peoples.

Is it as simple as that???

I don't have to like, set my PC to do anything special or nothing like that?

Thanks for the reply.

No nothing else to do, thats it. If ya want better quality though, ya could fit a better soundcard with digital connectors. But theres no need to if ya dont wanna

I did this one at a party too, but slightly different I connected the audio cable to the tv so it came out through that. But connecting it to the amp is just as easy.
