I build new rig with laying around parts for (mostly)win98 and (some)DOS games.
For motherboard I use Albatron PX865PE Pro + P4 3.0 Nortwood (I know its overkill but I have it) + Radeon9000, so no ISA slots (anyway I dont have any ISA sound card) and no any connector for DDMA. For Win98 mode I like to get A3D/EAX, and a best of worst FM/OPL/(wavetable?) for DOS (and SB 16, if possible).
For sound I have a small pile 😄:
1. Yamaha YMF744 - a3d via Sensaura, SBPro for DOS
2. Aureal Vortex Advantage AU8810 - a3d, SBPro (miss for my MX300, sold very long ago).
3. Infamous Live! SB0220 - EAX, maybe SB16? Is it work with A2D?
4. CT4810 aka ES1373 - I think its a weakest part, but if has something interesting - why not.
somewhere must a lay ForteMedia FM801, but i think its not worth poke that pile of dust 😄
Using idea from http://ixbtlabs.com/articles/livetolive51/index.html, Is it possible convert SB0220 to some more Creativish board? If so, which model to choose?
Today found some almost noname from PCPartner on KT133E+AXDA1700DUT3C (clocked at 100MHz - mother has no any switches). Its in bad shape, need recap, and have ISA. But I dont have any ISA Sound anyway 🙁
