    you have to go into advanced sound options through the control panel. I was using two at one point as well, that's how I did it, used one for ventrilo and another for my surround sound.

    Yes, you can choose which one to use as the default in Control Panel. Also, many audio related programs let you specify in their settings which sound card the program should make use of.
