Sound cards normally have 3.5mm stereo sockets on the output which plug into an amplifier to drive the speakers.
They don't have enough power to drive speakers directly.
If you have an amp with RCA inputs then you need a 3.5mm stereo to 2 x rca adaptor cable or an adaptor plug.

I run an M-Audio Audiophile 2946 but be aware you lose tha ability to turn the sound card down. It is only an interface. The volume is only in the application or the amp.
