all my controllers are analog, but i found that my onboard sound from dell uses USB ports.
So rather than replace all my controllers i need to get a sound card with a game port.

Thanks for any help

The game port doesn't really have anything to do with the sound card. They just happen to be included on sound cards because sounds are used in games and games often use sound. Your onboard sound 'card' doesn't use USB, it has nothing to do with it. Anyway, you can sometimes find just game port cards, often with 2 ports, for 2 joysticks, and you could get that, but sound cards are very cheap these days so the best would be to get a Soundblaster Live 5.1, for 4-point speakers and digital inputs/outputs, which also comes with a game port, plus you'll get more sound capability, for no more than $50.
