Firewire and USB PCI Upgrade for PowerMac G5

I am looking to add more Firewire 400 and USB 2.0 ports to my Dual 2.7 PowerMac G5. I don't need a combo card (two separate cards is fine). I was wondering which brand card works well with my Mac and OS X. I had a FireWire card that I moved from my Dell to my PowerMac but had a number of problems with a couple connected HDD's and Final Cut Pro. The card which I think was from Belkin was listed as OS X compatible on its packaging.

Thanks for any guidance.

Sonnet (http://www.sonnettech.com) makes good stuff.

I'd still consider getting a combo card, when I've last looked it's cheaper than single cards. It'll also have higher resale value to someone that's running short on slots.
