Is the PCI card better for latency?

PCI or PCIe is far more stable than FW and allows for higher track counts at higher sample rates due to the massive bandwidth of the PCI and/or PCIe bus architecture.

FW is a fine solution for those people not looking to record at high sample rates, use tons of i/o at one time and/or don't have a computer that allows for PCI/PCIe cards (i.e. laptops, iMacs OR when you need to go mobile).
