Audio:. Spent a few hours testing Audigy RX vs X-Fi vs 980ti audio vs HD5450 audio vs C-Media. Nothing work, audio always grayed out in sound properties. Finally put a clean Windows 2000 on there and it worked with C-Media, Put the Audigy RX in there and it worked with the XP drivers. Tried X-Fi and the driver installs but audio is greyed out.
Some audio drivers bundle an updated WDMAUD.DRV (file dated 2008), but Win2000 likes to silently revert to an older file which breaks everything and then there is no sound. Something to watch out for, as it seems to be a common issue.
