Ive looked through the forums, and its evident that since Mac Pro's have incorporated only PCI-E slots into their motherboards that obtaining a suitable sound card could be challenging at best.

My question is, considering the mac's core audio and all that, is a Professional quality sound card even needed? If so, does anybody know where I could find a good quality external FIREWIRE sound card?
