Rosetta 800 and Bg Ben to IMAC?

I see apple has the new IMAC 27"! It features one Firewire 800 port, would that be all I need or do I need more firewire ports? I was going to get a Mac Pro(four firewire 800 ports), but I would rather everything in one. By Apple making this new IMAC I thought it was just the perfect thing to do. How could I connect them all together?

And 75 Ohm Terminating BNC "T" Connector as the Rosetta 800 uses a unterminated word clock input.

Is there any reason to use a Master Clock with a single instance of R800?

NO, but I can dig it.

Big ben does have a better clock than the rosetta and when I had them both I could hear a difference ( whether it was real is another question!)

You only need one firewire port technically, unless your mobo has multiple fire wire busses. Multiple firewire ports usually share the same bus. Big Ben does not connect via firewire. There is a difference between Rosetta 800 and Big Ben clocks, its not a $1500 difference (or whatever they cost.) Better off buying other outboard gear.
