[LAU] usb or firewire (when having a ricoh chipset)

I have a Thinkpad R61 with Ricoh FW chipset and NVidia Quadro GK.
The Ricoh works for some minutes, then the connection breaks... I knew 
those constraints from the FFADO page and didn't waste much time on that.
I purchsed a Belkin FW/PCMCIA card F5U513v which has TI chipset.
My FW audio works without any problem (Focusrite Saffire PRO 10), but I 
have to deavtivate the NVidia driver when using FW Audio beause 
graficdriver shares interrupt with yenta.
My USB Card Lexicon Omega Studio also works great and I only can 
recommend it.
So my decision which interface to use is just a question of number of 
needed inputs,
