How to connect my new microphone and my 5.1 soundsystem?

Hello,

I'm buying a new headset to have a nice sound and a good microphone for online gaming. I previously had a cheap headset and didn't use the headphones part. I simply activated the microphone on my onboard audio card and used it this way. I also have a creative XI-FI card on which I plugged a 5.1 soundsystem.

Now, I'd like to use my XI-FI card to plug in my new headset because I'm choosing a very good one, and I'd like to enjoy it. I've been looking online and it seems that my best option is to use a splitter. But I remember using those like 15 years ago and I had a big drop in volume on my portable device (a minidisc if I remember right).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
