Default S/PDIF jack?

I have a Asus P5E-VM HDMI in my htpc and so far just have been using the onboard sound - not a permanent solution just something to get me up and running for now. I wanted to try sending optical to my receiver to see what improvements there are. I thought I was losing my mind when I couldn't find the optical jack on the back. I know it has optical audio, it says so in the manual. Turns out it has a header on the mobo for optical audio. So I need to get a S/PDIF jack that presumably mounts in a card slot cover, any ideas on where I can get one?
