I like M-audio stuff. The 1010 has a breakout rack mount and drivers are pretty solid and great latency. RME Hammerfall are suposed to be great too but not sure about front panel access. I have mixed feelings on Aardvard and Echo products, having not had much luck with the drivers for there products on a PC...though I am sure others have had success. I hope that helps you...I\'m sure someone will post more details on GSIF drivers and Giga performance...I would think most major companies will adopt the new GSIF2 standards for GS3.
