A few people have given you some input and asked questions trying to assist you in finding the right gear for your needs. It appears that you have ignored it all and decided what you want to do independently of any advice from GS members.
Why did you start this thread?
Since you're not paying attention anyway, I guess I might as well throw my opinion into the ring, too.
You're looking to improve the quality of your home recording setup. Great! Many of us are chasing that same carrot. Pay attention now, this is important...The most critical thing (besides talent - on both sides of the mic) is the acoustics of your room
. If you're recording with microphones, the sound of your room is going to have a big effect on the sound being recorded into your computer. When it comes time for mixing, what you hear out of your monitors is dramatically influenced by the acoustics of the room. If you can't hear the music accurately, how can you make accurate mixing decisions? You can have great converters, great preamps, and great monitors, and great microphones, but NONE of these things will compensate for a bad-sounding room.
I've experienced it myself, and seen countless comments by others saying the same thing...the BEST upgrade you can make is acoustic treatment.
You want to have a more "pro" sounding setup? Do what the pros do. Spend a lot of effort making the room sound good.
Getting an interface and preamps with enough inputs for your needs is critical, but taking a step down in quality there (something less than RMS and UA), and putting some of that money into proper acoustic treatment will pay off with much improved results.
