Windows 7: Firewire 800 Card Recommendations

Firewire 800 Card Recommendations

I am looking for a firewire 800 add-on card for my current system. I'm not looking for "budget" or "cheap," I just want something very reliable and robust for Windows 7 x64 (and Vista x64). What firewire 800 cards have you all found to work well in Windows 7 x64 and Vista x64 (both are Home Premium)?

I have a 1 PCI and 1 PCIe(x4) slot open. I don't know if these are 32-bit or 64-bit - if someone can shed light on that, also. Thanks in advance.

Belkin 3-Port PCI Express

Installed a Belkin 3-Port PCI Express card last night. Seems to be working fine. I've got 2 devices hooked to it at the moment and haven't had any problems. Be aware that one of the 3 ports gets closed inside the PC cabinet.
