Could you tell me anything about the speeds at which certain Aztech cards start to misbehave?
Would these still run on a Pentium 1 for instance?

Once the stuff I have ordered arrives, I will be able to answer this.

Some people say that they don't work properly past 133Mhz, other posts I have seen just say they don't use them on anything faster than a 486.

Use DOSBox for early 90's. Build a good Win98 box with an Aureal SQ2500 + Roland SCD-15 if wavetable MIDI is most important, or a Sound Blaster AWE64 if not. Although good luck finding it all.
