If you have an internal soundcard as the OP does, and you can't select two output devices to stream two different audio feeds to - adding a USB soundcard would enable him to have two soundcards in effect, and achieve his aim
Can't say as I've ever done it - however it's possible.
With a Logitech Clearchat USB headset I use it doesn't process the audio stream by itself, I have to set it as the device my internal soundcard points to. When I make that selection it will cut the audio from my 3.5mm jacks if, say, I already had WMP playing music and choose to use the USB headset in conjunction with an IM program for arguments sake...
