Soundcard Connection query

I have a Sound Blaster Audigy 4 sound card. It works great, no problems. However, i would like to use my front panel connections for using a headset when gaming, currently i have to unplug my surround sound setp up and plug the headset in, very annoying.

Is there a way of connecting this card to the front panel? I have only previously connected the mobo for on board sound.

I don't think there is :-(
Fitting a PCI sound card automatically disables the mobo on-board sound, which is usually where the PC front jack comes from.
May be wrong though...

No the front audio connectors have their own leads, normally i would have plugged them onto the mobo headers, but obvioulsy they are now disabled due to the PCI soundcard being there.
