I think you're gonna want the 960 anyway... unless you're running x64 XP... can't see how 32bit copes with a 6GB card, and thought it only coped with 2GB if you kept total system+graphics under 4GB.... though this might depend on chipset of motherboard and implementation, neither of which Dell seemed to be good at (Scowls at Dementia 5150)

Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.

GTX 980Ti is unsupported on XP OS but GTX 960 is and fast enough.

Put that 980 Ti in high end Windows 10 gaming box.

I got these two things during the last week.....

Xbox360 (slim) 250gb model for 50 euro. With two black controllers, 20 games and all cables. One of the controllers had a fault though. Whenever the battery-holder was shaken from side to side, during games as an example, then it would shut off. The fix was rather simple. I added a small layer of aluminium foil to the bottom of the plastic holder, and batteries would make perfect contact again. Else the console is in perfect working order. Only a few scratches on the plastic casing, but that is acceptable.

Then I bought this exciting sound card. Guillemont Maxi Studio, complete and boxed for only 27 Euro. Everything is in the box. All hardware, manuals, flyers, software and all that. Yes, even the external port box/module is in the box. I have not tested it yet, as I need to build a new Windows98 machine first.

The 900 series supports XP, it's just the higher performing versions left out of 'official support.' If he's putting it in a Broadwell-based system, poster probably doesn't care about native support, though.

Plus, the .inf file can be modified to support the 980Ti without much fuss.

Yes..... ISIS (Interactive Sound Integration System) fully/complete boxed, as I wrote. The requirement's list have Dos listed as well as Sound Blaster Pro. But it is PCI based, so I am a bit confused as to how old it is. It is a complete studio-system for home use, or that is how it is marketed on the box. We all know this is kind of an overstatement on behalf of the maker of the card. 😁

EDIT:
The only year that is written on the box is 1997. And the minimum OS requirement is MS Dos 5,0. It might be a late-1990's era card and not early-2000's card.

Good one 😁
But I have my Logitech Z240 stereo speakers, hooked up to an analog and passive audo-input/output 3-way selector. That setup gives good audio quality for DOS/Win98/C64/Amiga. In other words, for computers in general.

You're absolutely right. I'll make it work without official drivers.

Windows XP SP3 will install on my Haswell system with some modified AHCI drivers. The Broadwell should be a drop in replacement since the motherboard's BIOS already supports it.

It's a way overkill build (the best kind of kill) that I'll also use with Windows 7 (maybe Win 10 when I feel nostalgic for it).

I have an overkill XP/Vista build also, but I limited the board to Ivy Bridge with an I7-3770K (with 980 Ti). If you go with Windows 7/8.1, then I recommend you get an Intel B365 series board which can support Coffee Lake with official Windows 7/8.1 support. Now here is "drop-in" overkill with no messing around at all! I have a TitanXp installed into this system (with an i9-9900).

I've got a boxed / sealed ISIS card. I also have an unboxed copy. Haven't used it in a build yet though. If I remember correctly, it uses an ESS chip so DOS compatibility should be pretty good.

You just edit the inf file and the 9080ti will work under XP just fine, same for the Titan.

GPUs over 4 gb do cause issues with memory handling on 32bit XP tho due to how system memory is mapped but the card itself runs and performs flawlessly.

Prices are sliding now, could maybe find one in low hundreds but a couple of months ago it was worth $150 and maybe a few months before at peak GPU drought $200, that's because it will still perform on the same level as R9 380s, GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1650 etc

Huh, I had no idea it is still so usable. Maybe I'll build a guest gaming rig using it or something. I thought this was something like 10€/$ garbage, not useful for retro or modern gaming.

It's fine for modern low-end-ish gaming. I ran 2 of them in CFX years ago and you can play Crysis just fine though not at max settings at 1080p. Not sure about a single one though.

A single R9-390 is faster than CFX HD7970s.

The HD7970 should be a great card for an XP build for the most part. And if you want PhysX support you can pair it with a lower-end Nvidia card using the modded Nvidia driver pack that was put out years ago.

I wish I had room for it all. The Broadwell build will be my third overkill system. I don't know where I'd put more cases.

I am looking forward to hear what the quality is in regards to music in Dos games such as Raptor, Duke3D and Doom. The sound bank is one of them Dream chips from back in the 1990's. Some people will say that some of the instruments in the soundbank is a direct rip from a Roland Midi device. But I have no direct knowledge about this. All I know is that Roland threatened to sue them, and that is why a newer chip such as those in DreamBlaster-S1/S2 modules sound different. A quick run through the manual, also tell me that it is possible to hook up electric guitars and other instruments. Might be a valid reason to learn how to shred some grindcore.

I am a child of pre-hotplug and USB..... I newer do this with the machine powered on. For many years, I found USB to be unnatural.

Received CT4780, CT4830 and SB0350 today. Total cost £28. Not got a real need for good sound cards, as I'm deaf in one ear and tone deaf in the other, but hoping to sort the best I have for the rare times I get to show off my retro PCs.
