For the purposes of recording, REAPER can automatically compensate the recorded items to fit perfectly (it uses the ASIO driver which is usually accurate to within a few samples, and if your driver is off a little--or your converters etc have a little latency--you can use a manual option to adjust the offset).
With respect to monitoring of inputs through REAPER, and through FX, it's a little trickier since there can be latency added by the interface and some FX.. but if you're using a desk this is probably not an issue..
