The Firewire 800 PCI Card installed. As seen above not all contacts are within the PCI slot. The testing of this card was done in a 32bit machine. If this had been in a 64bit machine, all the contacts would have been inside of a longer PCI slot. For a close up of the image click here. After the install your firewire 800 PCI Card is ready to except either the 6-pin or 9-pin firewire cable. Keeping in mind that if you use this pci card in a 32bit system such as was here, you will not be able to optimize its full speed capabilities but will still function extremely well at 32bit.For a close up of the image click here.


Firewire 800 PCI card Testimonial

The 1394a/b firewire PCI card performed well even in the 32bit environment in which it was installed. It was used and tested with a 1394 firewire portable hard drive enclosure.  Install was very easy as with other pci cards. If you've got a dual processor system, you'll surely see the full potential of this cards speed and data transfer capabilities.

Made for 64bit computer system, able to utilize it in a 32bit computer system, I would recommend this pci card for its versatility between 64 and 32 bit systems and the speed in which it can transfer data.
