You did notice that with this mobo the 1394 ports are on a separate
stave, right? That means that, depending on the case you use, you
may have problems mounting 3 video capture cards plus the 1394
ports all in the same case (not sure about the TV out and whether
or not it requires its own stave as well).
Just food for thought.
