If you have multiple sound cards, installing pulse volume manager is almost a must (IMHO).

1. Set the default sound cards from the pulse volume manager

2. From the 'Playback' tab, you should be able to 'shift' the sound stream to the appropriate sound card that you want when you're playing something in that application e.g. playing a youtube video in Firefox...
