The oldest sound card that I own is a sound blaster 16. I was thinking of building a 286 pc for old dos games.
I read online the sb16 system requirements today and it said:
IBM PC 386 or higher, or 100% compatibles
5 MB of hard disk space for SB software
MS-DOS 5.0 or higher, Windows 3.1 or higher, Windows NT 3.5 or higher, Windows 95, or OS/2 Warp
Available 16-bit ISA slot
Speakers or headphones
It seems I don't have a sound card suitable for a 286 then. Has anyone tried what happens if you try sb16 in a 286 pc? Does it work at all or is it just that cpu is too slow to for playing game sounds?
What does it need VGA garphics card for?
