I have the SIIG DP FireWire 2-Port PCIe. It's compliant with Compliant with the IEEE 1394-1995, 1394a-2000 and OHCI 1.1 Standards. Doesn't work at even the highest ASIO buffer size with my old MOTU 828mkII.

Not sure the FireWire card is the problem but looking for another FireWire card anyway. Any suggestions?

Have you checked that the interface is working correctly?
After doing that, I'd suggest trying StarTech or Syba cards, with TI or VIA chipsets.
I don't use MOTU interfaces myself, so don't know which chipsets they like...
