Yes, that's exactly what it means...

Depends on the board you choose, but remember that some cards do have multiple things on one card.. and most likely the case you selected has a frontal Firewire Port that you can plug into later on
Thanks!

But what I meant was, wouldn't it be a disadvantage if I had two LCI's less for other future upgrade options?

Ok, Thanks !

I appreciate your help!

I'm still very confused and not sure what parts to get for the PC (see my other thread).
