I'm doing a quick win98 build for all win9x games to be played on, from 1997's lego island, classics like max payne, upto 2004's myst IV.
it's going to be an LGA775 pentium4ht @3.2ghz with 512mb ram and, if it cooperates, nVidia 6200le video. nothing too fancy but a robust and capable thing made from what i already have on-hand. It's not going to be used for DOS/w3.x games however as i have a socket7 for those.
Question is - which of these 4 soundcards should i go for with the pentium4? the motherboard does have built-in sound, but i want to add a gameport so i can use my old sticks/gamepads without having to buy any more hardware, i suppose extra midi options beyond MSsoftsynth will be of benefit too.
I manage a pot-pourri of video matter...
