The way things are going, only the low end of the market (ie. people
who don't use DAWs) will be using PCI/PCIe cards with built in
converters before long.

For low channel counts (8 or less) firewire is taking over.
For higher channel counts everyone will be using digital
interface cards and external converters. It's already happening.
