Hello everyone!! (1st post)

OK, this is the setup.. if anyone has any suggestions, big or small, PLEASE post, it may or will help, and i have a large budget for this project ($200-$1000, more if it's worth it).... SO, this is where i stand.. My computer (specs in signature) needs to feed audio to several sound systems, and possibly video to some lcd screens. this is what i have now:
My computer, audio sent to Logitech X620 6.1 surround, split from there to a 6.1 surround sound home audio amp (Panasonic SA-XR25) and speakers, and split once again to a 5.1 surround mini-system (Sony 991AV), THEN, my video card (ATI 9600SE) has a handy TV out which has the S-video going to the digital projector (Hitachi PJ-TX10, which has VGA-in, not using...), and split to a 36" tv in the kitchen.. NOW, what i wanna do is have S-Video going to the kitchen, and use VGA-in on the projector, but i have to get an adapter, easy pickup at the local computer store, no biggie (i have 2 DVI on the vid card)..

THE CONFUSION:
10,000,000,000 wires in my house. Low quality sound due to splittage.

WHAT I WANT:
Use of optical cables, even if it requires upgrading the sound card to an audigy4 or higher, upgrading logitech speakers to the logitech Z-5500, upgrading the sony minisystem, and I want to stretch my audio signal to go to two more sets of surround, both downstairs. Wireless audio transer? Optical Splitting? Use of plain old magic? Should I get another PCI-based video card to send clones of my video picture to the kitchen and the basement? I bought a FireFly remote to change songs from far away, but was left unsatisfied... What about a wireless mouse in every room (or a tablet?)? Maybe I should photoshop up my system in a diagram and repost it.. I've spent probably $15,000 altogether in audio/video equipment.. I just dont think it's up to par.. or i'm not enjoying it to it's fullest..
what do you expect me to write in just a couple lines? ppth.
