Hi,
You could purchase a pci card that contains a fire wire port, they are extremely cheap i was able to get a multipurpose pci card with 2 fire wire port and 4 usb ports for less than 20 dollars, installation is extremely easy too. But before you go out and buy a card, could you check the model of your motherboard, because it is possble that your mother board already have the needed connectors for a firewire port, and all you need the external connector. either of these options are inexpensive so it's definitely a sub $20 purchase.
