    Dedicated game port card???

    I would like to add a second game port to my machine rather than use 1 x game port and 1 x USB as I am now. Currently I have a Creative Sound Blaster Live and plugged into this is a Logitech Formula GP steering wheel for use with Grand Prix Legends. I also have a Logitech 3D Extreme for Red Baron 3D which I want to use connected to a game port rather than USB.

    I thought I heard there was some sort of PCI card I could buy and all it does is add an extra game port.

    Has anyone heard of these or knows where they are available? Also if anyone uses one do they have any issues attached to their use?

    Thanks

    Multiple game ports in a machine used to cause problems, I'm not sure if they still do. Personally I just use an extension cord to bring the game port round to the front of the machine and plug my joystick/gamepad into that when I need one.
