Hi All,

I've been having trouble getting my PC games to play in surround sound.
I have a Panasonic sc-bt200 all-in-one 7.1 surround system. It plays blu-rays and xbox games in surround, but not PC games.
Panasonic receivers do not read DTS through optical-in, and this specific receiver does not have plugs in the bag for 5.1 or 7.1 analog-ins, and only one HDMi out.
So it looks like I need to replace my receiver, and probably all the speakers too, since they are pretty low quality and operate at 2 ohms and I worry they will blow if I hook them up to a stronger amp.

I would like to play PC games in surround sound, and am willing to spend around 400 dollars.
Here's my question:
Can anyone recommend a good receiver/amp and 5.1 speakers, as well as a good sound card that will be compatible with my PC and will play games and DVD/Blu-Rays in surround?

My computer specs are as follows:
ASRock Z68 extreme3 gen3 motherboard
intel i5 3570k @ 3.4 ghz
8gb DDR3 g.skill ripjaw ram
Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 2gb
Corsair 750W PSU
Corsair force gt 120gb SSD
*no sound card
