Firewire PCIe Card
« on: February 19, 2017, 09:09:42 PM »

I'm looking to add a PCIe card to give my computer for 4 pin firewire capabilities.

I'm really unsure as to what is compatible I have a Z170 Motherboard and a Gigabyte 1070 in one of the PCIe spots.

Anyone know if if this pci card: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/2-1-3-PORT-1394-IEEE-FIREWIRE-PCI-E-PCI-EXPRESS-CONTROLLER-CARD-/140938192320?hash=item20d09225c0:g:OhgAAOSwPCVYBrq-  will be compatible with my comp?

Shouldn't be an issue. PCI-e is only incompatible it you try to plug a newer version of PCI-e device into an older version port. Example: PCI-e 3.0 card into a 1.0 port. The MB has 3.0 Port and that would be a 1.0 card.
