The best way would be a digital cable such as a USB to a DAC then phonos to the amp. But I have no experience of but accept that there are some very good soundcards for audio outhere, so if you are happy with your soundcards performance as a DAC then keep your connection as you have it now. The make of cable does not matter.

What is your amp and speakers? If you have a decent set up, I would say buy a USB DAC and connect the laptop to that and the DAC to the amp with phono cables.
