I have the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD sound card for my PC and Logitech Z623 Speakers. The speakers have 2 RCA plugs. I want to get 2 RCA Male to 2 RCA Female plugs so I can have 4 RCA plugs, two for my Soundcard from my PC and the other two for my PS3. My question is will this work and is it alright and safe to do? Thanks.

Not sure what you're planning to do with that cable. I don't see what use it would be here.

The speakers have two inputs, RCA and 3.5mm. Use a 3.5mm stereo cable to connect your PC to the Speakers, and connect your PS3 to the speakers using the stereo RCA cables.

Yeah, but the RCA output from the soundcard is better quality then the 3.5mm output. I know I could use the 3.5mm output, but I want the best quality because I also game and watch movies on my PC. Thanks.

They sell RCA Audio Splitters. I am at work so could not search a whole lot, but this was the first one I found...

Not sure how they could be that much different. It's the same signal coming from the same DACs.

It says this on the box:

RCA: 24-bit 192kHz / 122db
3.5mm: 24-bit 96kHz / 117db

I mean if it's not much different I could use the 3.5mm output. I also thought RCA is better quality because the only 3.5mm outputs are Microphone and Headphone, so I would have to use the headphone 3.5mm output to my speakers.

If that's truly the case then connect your PC using RCA cables and connect your PS3 to the 3.5mm input using an RCA -> 3.5mm adapter.
