    You have integrated audio hardware. A card is a card, and you don't have one if you didn't put one in.

    If you like, I can look up the manufacturer of the relevant hardware.

    That sound card should support optical 5.1 surround sound.

    Firewire-based audio interface. I hear MOTU has some really good ones.
