Re: PCI-X Compatible Sound Cards

This board is such an overkill for windows 98 I'm amazed that it works at all :-) PCI-X slots are 3.3V only. According to the manual of this board, there are 2 PCI-X buses: one with 2 slots and one with a single slot. If you can find a card which is fine with 3.3V only try this: Try putting your …

Re: AdLib GOLD clone is now a reality

Re: PCI-X Compatible Sound Cards

Correct, I am referring to PCI-X. So far, I've found only 1 PCIe sound card that works in Windows 98... and, it's ok, at best. I have been finding that some sound cards, with universal 32-bit PCI, do NOT play nice in 3.3V slots. Many of the Aureal Vortex cards are afflicted by this design challenge. …

PCI-X Compatible Sound Cards

Hey Guys, I'm looking for recommendations for a sound card that's fully-compatible with PCI-X. Unfortunately, I've found-out the hard way that just because the card physically fits into the slot, does not mean it's going to work properly. Ideally, I'm looking for something that supports Windows 98. …
