Your post is confusing. lspci is displaying two sound devices just fine. If alsamixer detected the sound card, what is the problem?
Have you got sound modules loaded? 'lsmod | grep snd' ( without the quotes ) will show any alsa modules that are loaded.
Do you have any sound? Try in a console 'aplay any.wav' ( supply a valid path to the file and a correct name ). Make sure the speakers are attached, and the volume is turned up.
I don't have any sound from this sound card. I mean I can't find my sound card is in gnome-sound-control(maybe it relates to pulseaudio), but I can find that in the alsamixer. Thus, I can't make this sound card as default in the sound setting panel.
