Hello all ... I need advice.

I have a Dell Optiplex 780 and Mavericks running on it already. I am a musician / composer / sound engineer and generally work with Avid Pro Tools HD 10. The Optiplex 780 doesn't have onboard firewire, but I need firewire to hook-up the Digi (Avid) mixer pannel to work with Pro Tools.

I have tried a firewire card, but that one didn't work, from what I read on this forum that was most likely because of the VIA chipset. Someone mentioned in another threat something about TI or Agere chipsets?

Can anyone tell me what firewire card (brand and model) will work with my Optiplex 780?

Thank you very much!

P.s. this site and forum community is really cool, not sure if I would have been able to get it running so far without. :)
