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.
Well there's still a fair enough selection in the ATX boards. But it's getting tough for the smaller boards.
I've got another thread looking for a mini itx board with a minimum of 3 sata 6Gb/s connectors. isn't happening on Intel yet. And when it finally does, there probably isn't going to be a firewire connector to be found.
