Question About Mic Preamp & C800G

Hey guys. I have a question about mic preamps. I've been saving up for a c800g but my interface/mic preamp is a scarlett 18i8. Whenever I hear people mention the c800g I always hear them mention it along with a Neve preamp. My question is... if I were to use this mic with just my scarlett would it make a big negative difference in the sound?

I don't really understand the difference between a $3000 mic preamp and just a simple $500 one. I mean... they just power the mics basically no? Do they really give the microphone a different "color", "tone", or "sound"?
