Yeah... bit of a shame to me. ASUS & Gigabyte, have both started to remove firewire ports from the motherboard products the past 2 years. (some motherboards still had them on P67, Z68 chipsets, but not all)

I still see them very prevalent on the Asrock products though! and they're quite a good value considering the features you get for the price.

In short, you want firewire on your new build? you'll have to add a card inside your pci slot or get a motherboard that still supports it.
