Do you want to collaberate with other musicians?

If so what DAW software are they using...?

Go with option 1.

If things go well you can extend/upgrade that in future with a better PC and RME stuff etc.

i dont realy colabarate whith anyone tech wise
musicaly yes but not tech wise

and if i do thay usealy just use fruty loops

the main factor heer is the pre
how dose the T1953 PRE AMP compare to the mboxs pre's
dose anyone own a T1953 PRE AMP??

also the system2 input is 1/4inch
and both the ur80 and mbow are XLR will this have a great inpacet on the sond?

Cubase SL Edition, Edirol PCR-1 and Behringer Tube Ultragain Mic 200.
Even if you update your I\O the Edirol has a MIDI controller too, so you may still use it after buying a shiny new RME in the future, its drivers are solid. About the Behringer: you can get pre amps a lot better but nor in this price range, it also functions as Tube Limiter.
The SL Edition Comes with HALion3 bundled, so there you got plenty of sounds to get started and a good sampler, there is an upgrade path to SX too, if you miss some functions, like offline processing for plugins and MIDI controller wrinting data to automation tracks.

When you first posted i assumed you have no sequencer: Steinberg Cubase System|2, I thougth it was a copy of SL and a USB soundcard bundled.

In this case get a YAMAHA i88x and save the rest of the money for a vacation or a UAD project pack.
