If you want to use the speakers connected to your PC then you don't need a USB cable at all. Just connect the XT analog outputs to your computer's mic/sound input(s). I don't recommend this setup because it uses your computer's internal soundcard which is almost certainly a lower quality than the XT, and may not even accept stereo input. You will also be able to record this way. Everything will be of poor sound quality - both input and output. It's like buying a good surround sound system for your home theater, and then choosing to listen to it using the $2.00 earbuds you got during your last airline flight. But you can certainly do it that way if you want.
The better method, for both recording and playback, is to use the USB cable and let your XT be your computer's soundcard. A standard USB Printer cable is what you want. The one in your link looks like it.
