API3124 + what interface = awsome?

I have just purchsed an API 3124 pre. I am very excited. I currently own an MBox 2 as an interface which I connect to my VIAO laptop and use protools on. I will however be upgrading. Any ideas on which interface will be the right choice. I can always trade in my Mbox for a digi 003 or 002(I think). i know that the A/D conv are not the best.

After purchasing the API pre, money IS a factor.
I also have a question about the pre. I keep reading that its discrete. What the heck does discrete mean? I have been engineering for under a year and I still do not have all the jargon down.

Any advice and answers will be a lot of Help!

I run my API 3124 with a FireFace 800. I like how I can set the input from +4, -10 and lo-gain (-18 I think it is). I generally run my inputs at -18 so I can crank the API's a little hotter but keep my outputs at +4. Runs flawless.

Discrete (components) means that it is constructed without IC's (Integrated Circuits).
