Floppy power connector.

That's for the external floppy power cable needed. Here is the manual for the card:

As I said, a FP port is mostly a convenience thing. If you don't use it (plug in your headset to your speakers instead, plug a fixed mic on the back of the card) then it's no big deal.

I can't really do that since my speakers are huge, lack an audio jack and is on the other side of the room.

What speakers do you have and how are they hooked up? Normally one would buy switches/splitters to easily solve these type of issues. If you really need/want a FP port then look at another card. The DX is about the same performance wise but lacks some extra input/output ports and DTS (next to useless under normal circumstances in Linux). It does have a FP port, but like I said in an earlier post, it's not auto sensing and you will have to make the switch manually in alsamixer.

I'm not sure what they are called, but they are two of those towers that you hook up to a reciever. My reciever is a cheap one, only has stereo, not even HDMI. I run a 5 metre long 3.5mm-to-composite cable to the reciever. A splitter could solve the lack of a FP connector like you said, I guess. I can't really buy a new sound card this month anymore though, since I decided to go for the new graphics card first. So I still have time to research.
