Convert PCI slot to ISA

Last Modified: 2013-11-09
I have just bought a new PC which has PCI slots. However, I want to be able to connect my old sound card (which is a Turtlebeach Fiji card) which is of ISA type...

I intend to use my PC for producing music and so don't want to buy a new PCI sound card.

Is it possible to get some sort of adapter to allow me to plug my ISA device into a PCI slot? If so what sort of costs will be involved?

What are the main advantages of a PCI type card over a ISA card? Will I benefit more by buying a PCI sound card?

Much obliged
