    recently swapped out my creative sound blaster for a razer AC-1

    and I'm using the connector form the card to audio ports so i could have both my headphones and speakers hooked up at the same time (but it hasn't worked out like that).

    the connector cable form the card has 6 connectors and my headphones take up 4 of them + one usb port and my speakers need 3 ports but theres only 2 spare (and ones a line in port so technically theres only 1 port left)

    so to get the the point of what I'm after.

    I need to find a audio switch box that can support a Razer Barracuda HP-1 headset and my logitech Z-5500 speakers. but I check the website fo the local store that sells that sort of stuff (and ebay too) and they don't have any audio switch boxes with more than 3 ports.

    This probably doesn't make a great deal of sense because i have no idea how to word it lol

    the usb is for power only, so you can ignore it and put it straight to the pc. the fourth wire is for the mic, so that could go straight to the pc either way. now it's 3 ports :D btw, where exactly did you find the switchbox? i've been looking for one for a while.
