My favourite vocal chain is a Neve 1073 into an 1176. Usually only very light compression at 4:1, it gives me control with the input and output knobs if I'm recording a dynamic vocalist. I can't recommend a mic, as every singer is different.

I don't have a lot of experience with the emulated preamps, but from what I've heard they're pretty cool. If you don't have access to great gear, you might be better off getting the cleanest possible signal into the computer and then using emulated preamps etc rather than doing something you can't undo with bad gear

Please keep in mind though that expensive doesn't always mean good. I recorded tons of vocals using cheaper preamps that worked great.
