How much IO do you need?
If you only plan on recording vocals and guitar then the scarlett 2i2 with an AT2020 Mic and an SM57 Mic should be enough to start out. Going by your $500 budget. Add a pair of cheap studio headphones for about $30-50 since monitors may go over your budget.
If you need more than 2 ins then I'd say go with a refurbished Saffire Pro 40 from proaudiostar.com , that interface will give you 8 mic Pres to work with down the line.

Thanks for your great answers , by now I use my interface for only accoustic guitar mic , a bass and electric guitar , I have a midi keyboard.
For the I/O I don't really want too much, Two Phantom inputs and I never record instruments simultaneously.
And about monitors I found a couple of old monitors "SOLID" who really sounds good , but I don't now how to plug them on my iMac output ? (until i get my sound interface )
