5.1 sound interface

Hi I'm building a Roomscale VR/ Home Theater room and and I had a couple of 8020a for ten years, or maybe more, then I aquired a 7050b for the subs, and later a couple of 8030's, I'll probably will get a single 8030, or three 8020's to make it 5.1 8020a+7050b.

But the question is, giving the fact that I've never had a 5.1 setup what soundcard in the range of 400$ could I use?

It has to be one that is connected to the pc because all the media, games are stored there.

I guess the idea here is to feed the the six inputs that the 7050b has available, so it has to be a interface with at least 6 xlr outputs, I'm kind of lost, but I love the raw sound of my genelecs, hope you can guide me through guys!
