Hi all,

I'm after some old ISA sound cards for my old DOS based games PCs.
Any brand will do (as long as it's ISA and I can get DOS drivers for it) .... Sound Blaster 16s usually fall into this category, but I'd settle for anything that works

Thanks in advance

Cheers

do you have any special requirements? like real opl chips or dsp revisions?
or are you really looking for any working soundcard? I have some sb16's and some ESS isa based ones, they all work fine...

No special requirements!
All I require, is a few ISA soundcards (about 3 or 4) which I will be able to get DOS drivers for.

ESS Audiodrive & Creative Soundblaster cards from that era seem to be most compatible.

Absolutely fantastic!
That's just what I'm after :)

As for ISA VGA cards, go on then, you've twisted my arm.

Let me know what the postage is ... cheers :)

btw. what's that first card you've pictured? I can't quite make out the markings.

I've an old SB live that works in my PC, but it's pci. I believe DOS drivers are available.

Unfortunately, the PCs are too old .... they don't have PCI slots in them.
