Alright well i just got me a sony digital video cameara. It kicks a porportinately large amount of ass and then i look at the output... firewire. Damn... damn damn damn hell fuck damn. So i went out and bought me a firewire pci card along with some very expensive video editing software. the whole kit and cabodle cost about 800 dollars. but a good 1/4 of that was the firewire card, cable, and pinicle studio software. So i was just wondering, why don't more mobo's have firewire as a commodity? Why must you pay so much extra for a firewire card? it's just annoying. It could also be easily avoided.
