Does a Firewire 800 PCI card make sense in a 32-bit PCI slot?

    The subject says it all. I'm under the impression that Firewire 800 only
    works at full speed in a 64-bit slot. If I'm right and it's used in a
    32-bit slot, what's the point paying the extra money for a speed you'll
    never achieve in a 32-bit slot?

    I'm looking at this link:
