    Well you posted pictures of speakers not monitors. And yes they will plug in to the green jack on your mobo.

    "Dual analog inputs for multiple connectivity for creating your music mixes"

    I assume that means it has a mini plug ("green hole"), or something you can use an adapter with.

    "Optical & Coaxial S/PDIF digital inputs for high quality audio transfer"

    If your motherboard/sound has a digital output, I'd use that.

    Digital > Analog

    I'd use the digital as well if possible. Your mobo has a digital input.

    I believe it is the input second from the extreme right. at least that's what it looks like on my motherboard. you take out that little "plug" and it's an input.

    Both of the plugs on the right side are digital. One is optical digital and the other is S/PDIF. Your Asus board should have a minijack S/PDIF output, that is what you would plug into for digital output.

    They are both S/PDIF, just one is optical and one is coax.

    S/PDIF is a data format definition not a cabling specification.
