Motherboards do not usually provide headphone level outputs.

They would be the domain of a sound card, but most of these only provide microphone and line levels, not "power" levels that you require.

You need an audio power amplifier, and most motherboards do not contain one.

Amplified speaker units and the front socket on a CD drive provide a separately amplified level.

You will get an unsatisfactory level of sound (low) from a line out on your soundcard with headphones, but you really need an amplifier. Build one from a kitset?

Kiwiguy is correct the headphone output is usually part of the sound card outputs but I reviewed your card at the MFG website and do not see the required output. Your motherboard does however have a headphone output.
See attached image.......
This poses a problem though since you do have an audio card you should disable the on motherboard sound to prevent conflicts.

The 800 has a connector FP_Audio connector that uses a standard Intel Front panel audio connector set up.
See this Website
Also not sure what the power level out is.

Using the pinout listed at that site you should be able to figure out which pins are required for Headphone and Mic hookup.

Attached picture is the pinout of the 800 motherboard.

PS: Again I stress this will only work if the motherboards audio section is used and active in the BIOS.
