Simple low latency PCI converters, 12 (preferably 16) or more ins/outs, ~$1000?

Is the answer the MOTU 24I/O? Anything else I should look into?

I already have pres taken care of, I just want converters that:
-sound good (they don't have to sound incredible, as long as they're better than a Presonus Firepod)
-are simple and easy to work with
-are not going to flake out on me like my current Firepods do
-I can get very low latency with (I would like less than 4 or 5 ms but I know this is dependent on the computer and software as well)

I was looking into firewire units (the Echo Audiofire 12 looked good, and cheap!) but I think the latency may be too high to track vocals with. Thanks for any other suggestions you guys have! Hopefully I'm not asking too much of a unit around $1000!

I track vocals on the AF12 all the time and don't really have any issues with latency and monitoring but, if I do, I just mult the vocal track before it hits the converters and send that to my monitoring setup. Monitoring should be a non issue either way you look at it. If the Audiofire is what you want, then get it and don't worry about the monitoring/latency issues. I think they sound great and the price is unbeatable.
