Lives for gear

It doesn't make sense to me to puchase it now.. FW is being phased out and purchase of such interface is just asking for compatibility issues in the future.
First I would either get USB ports fixed somewhere in Apple service center (it can be motherboard replacement, but it will be most probably still cheaper than new MB) or wait with possible interface purchase for your future and fully working computer.

Anyway, you could try to set the computer clock source to external.. I believe, it is located somewhere in the Audio-MIDI setup in OS X and the set ADI-2 to master.. (click through different modes using clock button at its front panel until you will be at required 44.1 or 48k, possibly also DS for 88.2/96k modes). Maybe you'll manage to get it working that way.
