Alright, pretty sure this is the right forum to post this one in..

I have a computer that has jacks in the front of it next to its usb jacks for headphones and a microphone.
I have two sound cards, and it seems that it only wants to let me use the primary crappy one with those jacks, but I want to use the front ones for my better soundcard for a bit more mobility for my cords.

So, the question here is, how can I make the front jacks on my computer be assigned to my better sound card?
I went through the sound/audio option, and everything including primary decice is set to my better card, but for some reason it still feels the need to use my crappy card as a default here.

Am I correct to say that the primary sound card is a built-on sound card and the second one is an Add-on card?

See the thing is those front jacks are connected to your motherboard thus connected to the on-board sound card.

What is the make and model of your mother board and second sound card so we can better help you?

I dont know how to get the info on my motherboard.. is there a way to do that without opening my computer up?

Run Everest Home Edition.

I asked the same questions a few months, about a year ago and I was told that you can't, unless you disconnect the cables from the motherboard and connect them to the sound card, but the add-on sound cards don't normally have the headers for it.

I could be mistaken, can someone confirm this?

Motherboard ID 63-0100-000001-00101111-072204-iSPGDL_G$EV915001_BIOS DATE: 07/22/04 17:17:29 VER: 08.00.10

Motherboard Name Intel Augsburg D915GAG

I guess that is the info you needed for the motherboard, if indeed changing this is even possible.

Yeah, this would be a pretty complex + risky operation. If you didn't have the headers on the soundcard, you would have to solder? =/ Not fun unless you know what you are doing.
