Speaker wire to audio jack [HELP]

Hello PC Partpicker community. I found some Bose Freestyle speaker being unused in my home and decided to use them for my PC. My motherboard (Gigabyte G7) has onboard audio which is accessed using 3.5 mm audio jacks. The speakers can be connected to via speaker wire. I tried searching with no useful results to find the right cable. Does anyone know where I could buy a 3.5 mm male to speaker wire cable? Thanks.

you'll need an amplifier to use them. the one listed above should work, though you'll still need some wire to connect the speakers to the amp.

Would you recommend that model, at the $20 to $30 price point?
