    Generally speaking, most cases have a headphone jack on the front panel and there is a header on the mobo that you plug into that connects to the front panel headphone jack. According to the manual for your board (MSI USA - Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more), the front panel audio header is labeled as JAUD1.

    You can buy the jack with cable quite easily. Your local repair shop probably has tons of them.

    It is the one called line-out, isn't it? (the circle of red on the far right in the picture, but usually green in real life)

    Just should at least label them on back, they do not. Have a manual came with it, use your serial number sure you can get one from MSI

    Some headsets are also capable of using supplied USB adapter.
