I would just use an USB audio card to get the surround sound. You could easily set up a bunch of t amps like this:
4x100W @ 4 Ohm TK2050 Class-T Digital Audio Amplifier Board 320-302
and power them on and off when you need them, they are very efficient. Speakers could be car audio ones. For me I would set up a KVM so I could connect a laptop when doing more processor intense stuff like Photoshop.
Whoa! FIFTY TWO dollars!? What am I made of $$?

just kidding, I really like that, thank you.

That actually looks like a perfect amp, much better than what I've been finding in my own search. I did just order a couple of these just to get the ball rolling: Y148 Audio Amplifier Module - Free Shipping - DealExtreme
