  1. Hi guys,

    Ive just got out my old Flight Sim 2000 disk to play on but didn't realise until now that my new build doesn't have a joy stick port....darn

    So i picked out my old soundcard and installed...low and behold discontinued with no Vista driver.Grrrr....

    So i now have a dilemma.
    I have £60 do i,

    1. Buy a new USB joystick and stick with on board sound?

    2. Buy a sound card with a joystick attachment in? (if they still exist)

    3. Possibility of buying both.?

    I know a bit about hardware except Joysticks and Soundcards so has anyone had any luck with a particular sound card or joystick or the best way of maybe buying both?

    Hope someone can help somewhat

    Thanks :)
