PC connectors are generally different to the audio connections on an amplifier. PC sound systems are usually only the speakers and a sub-woofer, not an amp.

Amp as in a stereo amp or A/V unit not a guitar amp. Reason you do it is for sound quality. A pair of half decent bookshelf speakers sounds better than most PC equipment. There are also plenty of sound cards on the market with connectors for all kinds of amplifiers, the Asus Xonar Essence range is pretty good and not too expensive either.
Can't say as I've ever seen an amp hooked to a computer, although anything is possible. Don't know why anyone would want to hook an amp to a computer really either?

There's some truth in that...
A good Amp will need good speakers to make use of its full potential and vice versa for good speakers. Sound quality is highly subjective beyond certain price point. So if you are satisfied by the motherboard sound sound, don't bother spending. It's an endless expense pit when it comes to the hobby of being an Audiophile.

The quality comes from the DAC (Digital to analogue converter)
Why is it advisable to purchase an amplifier?
