Default Firewire for capturing analog video

It seems I need firewire to capture video from my old Sony DCR-HC-30E.
My mobo doesn't have firewire so I'm thinking about a firewire pci card.

I thought it was just an interface like usb but it seems that some cards do rendering aswell.

I'm only using it to capture some old video's since the time of tape is over. No editing or whatever. Purely capturing.

Can I just get the cheapest card (my system specs are in my sig)?
Was thinking about something like this BigDennis
Case: Fractal Design R4 \ PSU: Corsair TX-650 V2\ Mobo: Asrock Z75 Pro 3
Processor: Intel i5 3570K Stock
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600C9 (2x 4GB) \ Videocard: Gigabyte 7950 Windforce 3
SSD: Samsung 830 \ HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F1 500GB \ DVD-RW: 1x LG
Speakers: Logitech (2.1)\ Monitor: Dell Ultrasharp U2312HM
Keyboard: MS Comfort Curve\ Mouse: Logitech MX 518
