Hi I wrote this many times in the past. I think the proper way is to set up
a fixed ids for your cards. This way the system can assign a specific id to
your card each time you boot.

For this to work I just set up following file

cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
## ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias snd-card-1 snd-usb-audio

## module options should go here
options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=ref
options snd-usb-audio index=1
