Something based on the Trident 4d or Opti 933 chipsets. The FM sound is the best! :lol:

The Microsoft Sound System is the greatest sound card in the world. 48,000 hertzes of full duplex audio and true OPL3 you can't possibly go wrong with this!!! also it sounds better than the Sound Blaster 16 (and by that i mean the true ones that are seen as a PC sound authority figure).
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x
SGL != Glide

This is kind of a silly question really. You need to make it more "answerable" before asking. There are millions of sound cards for millions of different purposes and preferences. What kind of a system you want to buld? Which games you want to play?, what is your personal preferences?, what kind of a budget you have?, etc, etc...

This just sounds like "which computer I need?". The best posssible answer you would get for that kind of questions is "42" (and you already got it :lol:)
