Sound quality cd vs. computer.

OK.. I'm a total ignoramus on the subject of using a computer as a source. I've been listening lately only on headphones, Sennheiser HD800's which are incredibly revealing and detailed. Mostly I'd be copying cd's onto a computer.
I can't quite get a consensus in my research on the subject of sound quality of computer files vs. cd's themselves.
Perhaps that's too broad a question, but if anyone can help me get started in understanding whether there is a way to get cd quality out of a computer (don't want to spend money on a DAC, so there's that to be considered also), it would be appreciated.
Thanks ......
