I think its supported by default =/
if not then you may have some problems, I have the same card and it works just fine, although I have not tried the surround sound ;)

Surround Sound
Many sound cards/chips have configurable plugs that can be used for things like line-in or rear speaker outputs. You should check in the Volume Control/Options and /Switches that you have these correctly chosen and that your speakers are plugged into the proper plugs. If you are dual booting with windows take care because windows may configure your speakers even though they are in the wrong plugs.

If you are not getting surround sound but your sound is working OK in stereo:


If you have 2.1, 4.1. or 6.0 Surround Sound, or a custom configuration, try this guide:


If that doesn't work for you, you can try editing your /.asoundrc file like this:
