Does anyone knows how to wiring the SB Live! 5.1 sound card to the front case audio jack??
I have an old 5.1 card, and I am getting the GB DS3 board, but I heard the onboard sound quality isn't that great. However I really want to hook up the front case audio jack.
Anyone has any idea how to make it work??

Thanks a lot!!

There are many ways to do this, here is one idea

Get one of those adaptors that is used in the back of computers for onboard audio. Get a stereo cable with 1/8" male stereo connectors on each end and plug into the Line In of the SBLive card and the Line In of the adaptor card.

Here is a simplified picture of the deal:
