My friend wants to know if there are any good video cards that will go in a ISA slot on a computer. It is very difficult to find them. There are 4 ISA 8 bit ports and 2 16-bit ISA slots, and it has atm 16MB of SIMM memmory in a 486DX4, and then what are the best soundcards. It has a 540MB hard drive, Windows 95, and DOS version 6.22 in Dual-boot. He's willing to spend upto $300 on a soundcard and Graphics card. What are you thoughts? :bounce:

Give it up, this has to be a troll.

I can't see any reason to buy anything for that old of a system. Even parts for it are hard to find....

What does he need to UG an old PC like that when one 500 times faster can be bought for $400 or less

Didn't answer the question. This guy wants this computer. He likes playing the old DOS games, and I told him about an emulator he can play in Windows Vista, but he would perfer to use this computer.

Hi yaoiboimi ,
listen , he is right.
its just doesn't worth buying any of this stuff ,
why not using an emulator to play old games?
it doesn't make the picture change , and you can run even things bigger then just DOS old games, it just doesnt worth the money effort and anything,

Cheers mate.
