By this point, I have amassed a large selection of nice soundcards, all of which I enjoy and appreciate on some level. I'm running low on space at home, and I really want to downsize to a single computer for my Windows 98/DOS gaming needs and another single computer for my XP/7 gaming needs.
This means that I really want to fit all of the best soundcards into my 98/DOS PC. ESS-Solo1, Yamaha YMF744, Vortex 2, and OPTi 82C931 are the ones that I already have. I want to put a good Crystal ISA card in there, too. I want one that uses their unique FM implementation.
My plan is to put this all into a socket 370 motherboard (which must feature AGP, 4 PCI, and 2 ISA slots) with my Geforce 2 GTS and Voodoo 4MB.
Is there any reason why this would not work? I do not want to use more than one card at the same time, but I want to be able to chose between them in Windows and DOS without having to open the case. I have good options for handling the multiple audio outputs, so that is not a factor for me. I know that people use 2 soundcards in a single build all of the time, but is 5 doable?
