Default Converting 2.1 to 5.1

I was wondering how difficult it would be to convert a 2.1 setup to 5.1?
I recently bought a 2.1 setup, but am needing some good monitors, so I figured I'd put the 2.1's to use by converting it to a 5.1 setup. I'll be running it through a Saffire Pro 24 audio interface. I'm newb when it comes to this stuff, so please forgive me if I'm offending the audiophile community with my potentially ridiculous request lol. Thanks.

2.1 I'm referring to:

Your problem is amplification, the 2.1 system is a dedicated 2.1 system.
It is not easy to add 3 further speakers with any convenience.

rgds, sreten.
