sound cards?

I have an Inspiron 660-Windows 10 etc.. I had an older Gateway system that used XP and had a great Boston Acoustics surround sound system, my question is does your company or ANYONE make a sound card that will support this older system? It had a desk top volume control-center channel, left and right front and left and right rear with a powered sub woofer as well as on the desk top control inputs and outputs for michrophone and head phones. It is working partialy now but I would like to know if it can be connected corectly. The outputs on the original card with the Gateway system were black-green- pink maybe a darker green or purple and orange, every one seems to want the color configuration, from the original hookup instructions this appears to be it. Can anyone be of assistance as I contacted dell and was refered to some obscure location in outer Mongolia.

RE: sound cards?

The Inspiron 660 motherboard has three PCIe x1 slots. The Inspiron 660S motherboard has one PCIe x1 slot. So any PCIe x1 sound card would work. Use the part numbers below to look up and research these Dell OEM PCIe x1 sound cards =

J75NW Sound Blaster Recon3D

P380K Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme

F333J Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty

Or just check out local stores for a PCIe x1 sound card.

The Recon is the best option IMHO.  660S REQUIRES LOW PROFILE CARDS.

It can still be found on amazon and ebay
