Lots of MOBO and case audio questions

The motherboard I am buying is an Asus m5a97 le r2.0

And my case is an Antec three hundred

the Asus motherboard spesification page says that the motherboard haves "Realtek® ALC887 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC" and yhe page says also that "Use a chassis with HD audio module in the front panel to support an 8-channel audio output" so.
1. What does this mean.
2. Does my case have this hd audio module and
3. are these the front panel audio connectors.

The motherbord spesification also says, that it has "1 x Front panel audio connector(s) (AAFP)"as an internal I/O port
1. what does this mean
2.can i connect this to my front panel if this is supposed to connect there

If the text below was written in bad english (Im not sure) or it was too complicated heres my main question simply: Can I install my motherboards to my case and have the audio working witout any problems

If you can answer even a part of the questions I have please do so, Its an HUGE help to me.

Thank you

  1. Best answer
    1) It means that if you ever wanted to go with an 8-channel audio solution (7.1 Surround Sound), you would need to use the front HD Audio ports on your case.
    2) Yes
    3) Yes

    1) This means the cable coming from your case for your front HD Audio would connect to this port on your motherboard.
    2) See Answer 1

    Stereo, 2.1 and 5.1 audio surround should work without a hitch. 7.1 audio may take some manipulation to get working.
