    Hi everyone and Merry Christmas:

    I need some opinions. I have an IBM system with onboard sound and it does not have a game port. Do you know of any companies that manufacture PCI game (joystick) port cards? I've found some old ISA ones out there, but would prefer PCI if available. I'd rather not go the route of a new sound card, 'cause then I have to disable the onboard and I've already had problems with this system. :) Looking for a quick fix, I guess!

    Thanks for your opinions!

    If your PC doesn't have a USB port go out and buy one of those. You could always disable your on-board sound and get a really high end PCI card with a game port on it.

    I don't know about the states but you can get a 128 bit soundblaster card here for 20 bucks AUS.. just disable your onboard sound and get a PCI card they can be cheap and most come with game port.
