decent analog or digital board for small project studio

In the next year I'm planning on building out a back room of my garage into a project studio. Right now I've got a small room in my house. Right now I'm using Cubase and a Firepod. I plan to continue to use Cubase, but would like to upgrade to a board with better pres and converters. I'm not planning on doing huge projects, but would like to have the capability. I've looked extensively at the Mackie Onyx 1640 with the Firewire option and think that might be the way to go, but was wondering if anyone had other ideas. I'm open to any and all opinions. Remember I'm trying to keep this LOW-END....

whats low end? keep it under a grand, keep it under 5 grand?

I have a DDA board that I LOVE. I see bigger ones go on ebay sometimes for between 2 and 5 grand. Of course the usual suspects, allen and heath, soundtracs, maybe a smaller trident

I'd like to keep it under 2 grand and have something I can run right in to Cubase. Right now I have no plans to go buy a HD24 or anything like that.....
