problems with sound-card

anything that is true mono, coming equally out of both speakers, will cancel out and not be heard correctly, if at all.
this can happen with the signal being fed into an amp as well, with the positive and negative leads being reversed on one side.
I have experienced this personally with the output of an onboard sound card, where the signal was out of phase.
since you said it happens on 2 cards, I would check your wiring to your speakers, and also the wiring of the cable from the sound card to your amp. I would suggest using the soundblaster card, as it will be better quality than the onboard soundmaxx, and I have yet to see a soundblaster have a problem like that.
using the headphone out to drive your amp is fine.

depending on what cable you used to feed the guitar amp, you were either getting the phase problem, or not getting one channel at all. you made me pull out the old zeppelin album to check- the acoustic guitar is right channel only, so it sounds like you werent getting the right channel.
that would make sense, since the guitar input to the amp is mono- the positive signal for the left channel appears on the tip of the plug. the right channel wasnt being used.
oops, Im going audio geek on you!
