Default computer as source, DCX2496, amp help, etc...

alright, here's the situation. i'm using a computer as source. the goal is to basically build my own 2way or 3way monitors. at the same time i need to mind the neighbors/roomies etc so i would like to be able to go out to a headphone setup as well. the signal chain goes: Computer > DCX2496 > Amp X > speakers.


how would i get computer audio into the DCX?

if i were to make an XLR to RCA interconnect would i be able to use one of the DCX's outputs to feed a headphone amp (full stereo, no filtering)?

amplifiers. i don't know what's good in home audio. i need at least 4 channels obviously, don't see a reason to have more than 6 since i'm using the behringer to feed it. i don't need anything super powerful or super pricey. 50-70w at 8ohm is perfect. maybe even too much. i've seen things from $130 to $1200. not trying to spend the latter i don't plan on doing a sub though i've considered using a peerless SLS 8" as one and attaching the box to the desk.

thanks in advance.
