I'd also recommend getting a real sound card for this machine too, if you
are doing much gaming.
I've had no end of trouble getting games working - UT's frame rate is
about the same in work (PIII 866/GeForce2 MX) as at home (TNT2, Celeron
400) - due to the sound card being incredibly primitive, according to the
lads in Loki. QuakeIII won't work at all on my machine, because there are
some things that the card doesn't do (like downsampling) which OpenAL does
in software, if it's not availible in the driver, but quake barfs at.
At least that's why Loki said it won't work on an i815 board...though
with the new nvidia drivers, one of the lads here has gotten it working.
