Ensure the card you buy has capabilities to connect to front audio.
Normally tells you in its specifications, this is one of those areas where you really need to see it rather than buy it online.

The card will have stand-offs or a section where front panel may be connected.
Alternatively the manual should confirm one way or another - Creative's site should have one.
