Default EXTREMELY cheap stereo amp for pc?

I have 2 tangband W3871S drivers sitting around and want to use them in an arcade machine project.

What I need is an amp to power them and connect them to the PC sound card, and the amp needs a volume control. I really don't care if it's just a pcb or a kit or something more commercial, I just need something reliable with a volume control that will fit my needs. The drivers are 15 watt rms and 8ohm nominal.

This is just a 1 driver per channel deal so AFAIK I don't need to worry about crossovers or anything.

I'd hope to keep this under 35 US w/ shipping (preferably lower), but hit me with suggestions if you can and thanks!

Your PC power supply already has 12V so why not get a cheap car amp at the local Circuit City. Don't worry about fidelity, your limiting factor is the sound card.

Those who claim to be making history are often the same ones repeating it.

The JBL 12 W stereo amp looks more like what he is looking for.
