Having 2 sound cards in the machine shouldn't be a problem. If you're
not getting sound from one of them, try the second one. I believe
which sound card is the default depends on the order the hardware
is detected, and the modules are loaded. If you're not getting sound
after booting into a freshly installed system, then you may need to
unmute both cards, and set volume levels high enough. I don't recall
if the install manual tells you how to do that or not.

The above makes no sense to me.

No, you don't need a monitor connected to your video card.
