1.) It is a green TRS 3.5mm stereo output, front channels...Why do you need to know? It is just bassically a standard 3.5mm audio cable
Audio and video connector - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

2.)Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Sound Cards

That is a decent sound card, you can obviously buy better. You can find sound cards pretty cheap sometimes so look around at newegg.
