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

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.
