    control panel > sounds and Audio devices > Audio tab

    then select your ATI audio output as your default play back.

    go into the control panel audio properties and pick ATI HD rear output as your default.

    Thanks dudes , but I was referring to the physical connection. I have a cambrige 2.1 speaker system. where do i connect my speakers? Do I have to have the asus drivers for the card or the reference drivers work?

    Thanks

    ummm.. the HD sound from the ATI cards are for carrying through the HDMI to the TV or receiver. So it won't be used if you want to use your soundblaster for speaker output.

    So answer to your question is plug the wires into the sound card output and to get sound out of that card make sure you pick the soundblaster as your default playback device.
