Can you set the sound output to 5.1 or is it just 2 channel?

I don't know of a single game that's recorded in 5.1. However, 4.1 is really common. I don't own BF2, but I'd be willing to bet that it's recorded in 4.1

Actually, BF2 is the first game to have X-Fi mode

Virtual surround is either software or hardware emulating the extra Sound channels to make it sound like 5.1 surround

Its like an extra signal being pumped through to make it sound like you've got more speakers behind you
