Lives for gear
 

the Firewire bus usualy runs off the PCI bus anyway it does not have to travel through the southbridge. its a very different animal from USB.
keep in mind not all FW controllers are created equal. if you are having any issues with your 002 you should get one of the approved FW cards

in terms of transfer rate, its not as issue with the limited number of i/o you are never going to max out either bus.
