I need help deciding!!!

Ok so i ordered a new computer which should be arrive in a couple of days. I will be doing a major upgrade from logic pro 8 to logic pro x. That said I am going to be upgrading converters too. I am eyeballing the Motu 828es as it will do everything I need and give me an option for smux expansion later on. That said I have to save up the funds for the new Motu. I do have enough to buy a used Tascam US-16x8. Should I spend the money on the tascam so I can go ahead and start running my new comp and logic pro x or should I hold off and save the money towards the motu. The motu will get bought reguardless. The TASCAM is strictly to get me running my new comp sooner.

Here for the gear

828es is a beast. Personally I'd take a look at the 1248, but for $400 more dollars and your budget concerns the 828es is the way to go in my opinion. However, I will say that I've never had a favorable view of Tascam stuff. So take that for what it's worth

I looked at the 1248. It is a great piece. But for my needs the only thing the 1248 does for me that the 828es doesnt is the monitor outs. I have a console and a couple outboards so having 4 mic pres is not needed and the monitor outs arent worth 400 bucks to me.
