I think changing the bus would alter things enough to be a problem.  Can 
games expecting an 8 / 16 bit ISA SoundBlaster work with a PCI 
counterpart?  Or is there enough difference that it would take new 
drivers / code?

In my experience, games written for CGA and 80286 do not do well on modern equipment. You CAN play them, but they are really slow. The video and sound still work on a Pentium III with PCI audio and PCI or AGP video, as long as you still load DOS and/or Win 3.1. Anything higher than a PIII seems to be difficult to find drivers to make the basics of the motherboard work under the old OS. World of Warcraft in our household went from a 386 to a PIII, and then got set aside as we kept upgrading computers.
