    The most popular (and possibly the only?) 5.1 card for the Mac is the M-Audio Revolution 5.1. It's a great card but unfortunately there are no $25 sound cards in the Mac universe as far as I know.

    Wow, there is no way I'm spending $80 to use $50 speakers, haha. Why do all mac peripherals have to be so expensive. I just finally bought a $70 sata card for it. Oh well.

    The Mac peripheral market is getting better every day, but it is still behind the PC market, especially when it comes to low-mid priced gear. There are a lot of very expensive, high-end sound processing cards available to Mac-using professionals but most gamers are limited to 2.1 because there are no low-end, low priced 5.1 cards on the market. To be fair, many of the $25 sound cards for PCs are not very good, but it would be nice to at least have the option...
