    well jumpers and jumper caps are just small wires that come out of the motherboard that are meant to be shorted out to tell hardware what to do. The jumper caps short them out, and you do need them for new systems if you want to turn things on or off or if you have to reset your BIOS. I think you mean jumpers because I only know of jumper cables for cars.
