  1. Hello! I am about to purchase a Steelseries H Wireless Headset but I noticed I do not have a Optical connection on my PC nor my sound card. The Headset allows Analog and Optical and a USB connection for the microphone as I've read. Analog as I've searched around the web reduces quality and doesn't allow 7.1 surround to work. My sound card supports 5.1/7.1 surround but has 5 different colored connections at the back and a "screen DVI" looking connection as well. My question is: Can I connection the optical cable from the headset to my sound card or any 3.5mm jack on my PC with a adapter that doesn't require a power source for the same quality. Will it work? Pictures/Links for reference, taken off of google: 1. Sound card (attached as a file as well): http://www.sevacall.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/sound-card-not-recognized.jpg 2. 3.5mm optical adapter (attached as a file as well): http://www.thatcable.com/WebImages/AB9001_700x309.jpg 3.Steelseries H Wireless headset: Lag Free H Wireless Quality Gaming Headset | SteelSeries 4.My Motherboard, MS-7798: Motherboard - The world leader in motherboard design I hope this is a question someone can help me with, I have no knowledge in PC audio. Thank you in advance and have a nice day!
