Yes you will need an AVR. And to get full value from them you'll need the on-board sound chip or an add-on sound card that is surround sound capable.

What computer/motherboard do you have. You may not need a sound card as some on board sound has digital outputs and descrete line level outputs for each channel. If you use a digital output you will need an avr for the decoding, if yours has line level you could just get an amp and let the computer decode. Right now I am using an onboard optical output to my avr

Your motherboard has optical out and supports 7.1 audio so any modern AVR will have the necessary inputs.

Budget?
