Topic: Fireface 800 with Gigabyte motherboard

I'm about to build a new system with Cubase 5.5, i7 950, 24GB of RAM using a Gigabyte motherboard with the TI firewire chip built in.

Your last article on FF800/PC issues was in 2005 where you had tested several Firewire 800 cards available in Germany. … ire_compat

Since then, have the "worrying" issues covered been resolved? Do you have a recommended firewire card today such as the Adaptec? Or should the FF800 be run with a Firewire 400 port?

Thanks in advance for your help.
