Sound Card and CPU settings

  User-3260B6E0-D40E-464F-B62478D4E17479D3 20:38 30 Dec 2003

I gave my old pc to my brother last year with Windows ME and a Hercules Game Theater sound card. The pc kept on going slow so eventually I upgraded it for him to Windows XP and upped the cpu to an Athlon 2400XP and doubled the RAM to 512 PC2700.

Now the GameTheater doesn't work and I can't find any downloads on the Hercules website: they refer to a GameTheater XP.

I am looking for a couple of bits of advice. What should the cpu speed and multiplier for an Athlon 2400 be in the setup? What do you suggest for a decent sound card for, say, up to £100?

for around £25 a sound blaster 5.1 digital is not a bad card.

as for the hercules game theatre,the xp download link click here also supports 98/me/2000/xp(sp1)

FSB should be 133
