Mixer for PC / Synths making my head hurt.

OK, I don't know that much about mixers so here's what I'd like to do.

I have a 2/2 audio interface, and 2 synths. What I want to do is mix the synths, and the output from my PC to my monitors, but send only the synths back to the PC. (so as to avoid a feedback loop)

What do I need to look for in a mixer to have this kind of routing capability? Or is there some other piece of gear that would accomplish this?

A new interface w/ mixer. Like the 003.

Peavey, Soundcraft and Mackie all do USB mixer interfaces.

Both correct answers, but FireWire is not an option. I use Linux, don't want to mess with FFDAO. I'm also not looking to spend a grand. Just need to have a bit more flexible routing.

Any other ideas?

You just need a mixer with auxilliary outputs. For example, I've got an A&H Zed14, which has four aux outputs. I route two of them to the stereo inputs on my audio interface. Then I can dial in which ever channel on the mixer I want to send to the aux outputs (mixing mutiple synths), which are then sent to PC (mixed with the PC audio), then sent back to the mixer and then to the monitors. There's no feedback loop, since the output from the PC never goes back into the PC.
