Connecting computer to a stereo

I want to be able to play music stored on my computer (iTunes) out through my stereo. Does anyone have any cables they can recommend?

Thanks in advance.

3.5mm to stereo RCA plugs...

I've found these cables at some 99 cent stores.
You may also need the 12 or 24 foot RCA patch cords.

The back of my computer has a "speaker out" port, and it also has what looks like an "audio out" (along with an audio in port and a mic port). If I go the 3.5 to RCA route, do I plug into the speaker out or the audio out?

Use the audio out, speaker out will cause the pc volume to be dominant volume control. Audio out will feed the stereo and let it control the volume.



hmm...I guess I type to fast aswell? 180 secs?? That seems a little extreme to me....but then who the H(*& am I?
