    Hi all,

    I'm still using my old trusty 8k5a2+ I would like to add a 1394b
    (firewire 800) card to it to run an external hard drive.

    My question is will it run at the full speed, or only run at the old
    firewire speed, I heard that some older motherboards won't be able to
    run at the higher speed, because of the pci bus/slot won't let it?

    Any help would be great!

    Many thanks

    Matt
