It depends on what it is you're trying to do. Are you trying to play audio from the PC through the amp & stereo speakers?

1. How to connect only speakers
2. How to connect amp (including speakers)

The mini-jack plug connects to the line out socket on your sound card, the twin phono plugs connect to the AUX port (or CD or Tuner port) on the rear of your amplifier.
You cannot connect your stereo speakers directly to the computer because they are (I assume) non-powered & the computer requires an amplifier of some description in order to make the sound audible. This is why computer speakers have built in amps.

In case you haven't worked this out, you can also connect that cable directly to the headphone socket on the front of your CD/DVD drive in the PC, instead of the sound card's line out socket. This way you can play music CDs through the amp & speakers but without all the Windows sounds (such as the startup jingle etc) being piped at loud volume through the same system!

Then all you need is a twin phono coupler (see pic below) to join the two cables together
Alternatively, if you can find one long enough, just buy a phono cable which has 2 x phono [male] on one end & 2 x phono [female] on the other. This way you won't need the coupler.
