Re: PCI-X Compatible Sound Cards

You do realize that Windows 98 is going to ignore all but one core/thread right? Yes, I do realize. My main goal for this build is Windows 98 compatibility.

I agree. OEM P4sand even Athlon 64 systems are literally like VD. Shit is everywhere. It used to be the same with P2/3, Pentiums, 486s, etc. Give it 5-10 years and supply will begin to dry up. The next jump in hardware is then to XP which has a very wide range of hardware you could use, and it's …
