First post, by pentiumspeed
I was trolling this sound forum and searching the ebay turned up several I can purchase to add sound to my computers I'm building up for vintage gaming.
What I need: ISA card for pentium 200 (plain) or 233mmx. And either ISA or PCI for PIII 500, and finally PCI only for 1GHz PIII motherboard with SB-link connector.
DOS for Pentium, maybe occasional 98SE, For PIII, both DOS and win98SE.
This took me days and days of reading and researching many forums and vogons here as well. Some of them will get the wavetable daughterboard someday later on.
Already bought a SB0100 Live! 5.1 card PCI.
What about x-Fi (later on this is for XP gaming box).
Key is absolutely lowest noise and clearest as I can go as I have poor hearing, clearer the sound easier for me to enjoy better.
How is this one on ebay link it has YMF262 with YAC512, does it still have shill scream or noisy?

I can modify and improve any as I have oscilloscope and soldering tools, components and can obtain some chips.
Also I dug up short list of cards:
CT2290 has good chip (CT1703A) still has high speed dma bug?
X-Fi Xtreme Music SB0770 7.1
X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion
(Does the x-ram matter at all even at 16MB even 64MB?)
ES1688F with solder pads for YMF262, YAC512 and LM324 (ISA Formosa MPB-000016 - SC1616). Can I add this parts to this card and gain good OPL3?
Terratec EWS64XL I found one, how is it for early games that is particularly difficult to work with?
What about this?
Sound thing really opened up giant earth sized tangled ball of string to unravel. 😜 I feel frustrated at Creative being so lazy at quality that sound mattered most to us? Years back, I played SQ games and had all of them and had WC1, Doom and 2 etc. But interested to do again and finish them too try out many more games to play with too once I have them up and running.
