Specifically with regards to a Turtle Beach Montenegro... 2? The one with the Vortex 2 on it anyway.

#1: How good is the DOS mode compatability? That's half why I want it, since the Live! is absolute ass and won't do MIDI out at all under DOS.
#2: Can it emulate EAX 1 or 2 at all well? The only game I care about wrt EAX is System Shock 2 really, and being able to have one system that can do A3D and early EAX without having to manage two cards would be great.

Finally: Does it have any issues with certain high speed CPUs? I'm probably using it with a P3 600 but might be using it in a dual 933 system as well.

1 - DOS compatibility is generally regarded as very good.
Red here for more information. Especially Gerwin's post.
Recommend a PCI Sound Card for DOS

2 - EAX 1.0 at least is available with certain driver versions. Apparently it wasn't all that good.

3 - I'm not aware of any speed issues even beyond 2GHz.

The website works fine for me. I've done a few tests from there and installed the workaround. I have an X-Fi card, and it's kinda working, but people say it's inaccurate. Oh well. I may record these sound tests and a gameplay from Unreal w/A3D enabled just for posterity.
