[WriteLog] PCI vs ISA Soundcards?

I wonder if there are different versions on the PCI 128 in the market Place.
I recently purchased an HP Pentium 4 1.4 GHz box for multimedia work and it
came with a PCI 128 sound card. When my radio computer started having
problems I installed WriteLog on this one. No ISA slot so I couldn't use
the trust old W9XT voice keyer and for CQ 160 SSB I had to get sound card
voice keying working on the P 4 Box. I had no problem with volume levels
for recording wave files and muting line out, etc does no effect line in,
BTW, faster memory and faster CPU doesn't always mean Writelog features will
run faster. For example on RTTY this computer does not highlight calls any
quicker than on an Athlon 550 machine. Same hold true with the CW reader.
