Need help with speakers - 8 pin mini DINN connection

I replaced the motherboard in my computer and I need to know how I can get the original system BOSE speakers to work (integrated with my monitor). They require a power amplifier and have an 8 pin mini DINN connector. I have the BOSE amp that was cabled to the original mother board via a 10 pin ribbon. This went to a connector labelled 'Audio Amp'. The new mother board does not have this type of connection. Is there any way to re-use this amp or are there other pci slot amps available that have the 8 pin output connector. I seem to only be able to find sound/amp pci cards with regular stereo line in, line out, speaker, etc connectors. The computer was originally an IBM Aptiva model 2140 (A1 motherboard) and the new board is an intel DB850GB (yeah I know it's not REAL new). I have both boards manuals in PDF if it would help.

Thanks in advance,
