How is 5.1 surround 'Supported' out of box?

I just purchased this computer, and am trying to figure out how to connect dolby 5.1 system to it... The box claims that surround sound is supported, but on the actual PC there are 2 headphone jacks, 1 in front and other in back, like any other PC. 

How is surround supported if there are no connections for it?

What kind of 5.1 system can I purchase to connect to it?

@ilirpell, welcome to the forum.


Here is a guide that should help you connect your 5.1 speakers to the computer.  You should scroll down the the section titled "Know Your Computer".  This section shows you how to connect the speakers using the Line-in, Line-out and Mic ports.
