    Getting the most from my CarPC Audio

    Alright well my computer is up and going in my truck. Here are a few specs:
    Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 3.33GHz (6MB L2 Cache)
    Intel BLKDG45FC Mini-ITX Motherboard
    Lilliput 809GL-80NP/C/T VGA 8" Touch Screen
    4GB Ram (Super Talent DDR2)
    Panasonic UJ-875A Slim Slot DVD-R/RW/RDL/RAM drive
    Griffin Technology Radio Shark 2
    Scythe Mugen 2 Heasink
    M3-ATX Smart Power Supply
    Anyways, I am wondering exactly what I should do from here to get the best overall sound?
    8-channel (7.1) audio subsystem with five analog audio outputs and one optical S/PDIF digital audio output using the IDT 92HD73E audio codec
    Can I use the optical output at all? I need to upgrade the rest of my audio system now so I'm up for suggestions. Speakers, amp, etc.

    How would you guys wire this up? I'm tempted to reuse my factory wiring harness that runs to the stock amp but I that's just the cheap me that wants to get this thing going ASAP.

    Can I use all the audio output ports on the motherboard or what? I will have keep it to four door speakers, two tweets up front, MAYBE two tweets in the back, and a couple subs a little further down the road.

    Also, I totally removed my old headunit for this install. Nothing but the PC in there now.
