I am running Pro Tools 10 and Logic X, with lots of plugins installed, and it works flawlessly, really great... My audio board is an MBOX-2, connected by USB... And now I decided to buy a DIGI-002, and it is FIREWIRE, instead of USB... Since my computer has NO firewire connections, now I need to by a firewire card...

Most people say TI is the better chipset, some people say VIA chipset can work, as well... I'm trying to find a firewire card with TI chipset, but now I have questions about TI chipsets... I was browsing Amazon website and have found 2 firewire cards:

SD-PEX30009 (chipset: TI XI02213AZAY)

SD-PEX30016 (chipset: TI XI02213BZAY)

I've seen so many posts (around the web) saying the first one does NOT work and the second one DOES... On the other hand, I've also seen so many people saying the first one WORKS and the second one does NOT... OMG, which one should I buy...? I can't wanna waste my money on something that I will not use...!!!

I am totally confused...!!!
