Modern motherboards are capable of both HDAudio and AC97 Audio, this is set in BIOS.

Therefore modern cases at the end of the front panel audio wiring loom have both sets of connectors, only one set is used depending on the BIOS setting of the Audio:

Obviously this was all gleaned from Intel Support who manufacture the motherboard in your specs "Intel D925xcv desktop motherboard"
