Audio interface for only software

Hello... If I'm going to use only vst's synths and effects with 48 hz and 24 bit quality, does the quality of the audio interface matter? What features should I consider at the moment of buying an audio interface?
thanks!

Only the DAC (output) will matter for monitoring.
If you can hear any difference depends on your monitors and your hearing.
Features could be amount of outputs (if you need them).
An ai will do nothing for the itb quality.

48hz? I hope you mean 48Khz.

Yes the quality matters a lot because it impacts latency ( time between pressing a key and hearing the sound of the vsti) and how large a project you can handle. The drivers are the most important thing dro someone like you. RME would be worth a serious look on PC if you have the budget for it.

Thanks guys!
Unfortunately I don't have money for a RME. And yes, is 48 kHz
I won't use much tracks but a lot of processing with vst effects. I could use some wav registration or samples and I would be interested on linking reaper with another daw in real time.
So I guess I should consider the quality of the output but about process capacity I have no idea about what to look for on the specifications.
I'm trying to save money. That's why I'm trying to filter and look more specifically for what I need

Reverb has a good Point.
If you are playing samples or vsti live latency would be important.
Processing is done by your computer not the interface.
Output quality impacts what you hear, not wat is being processed.
