best interface preamps?

I'm trying to complete a little solo acoustic project and am wondering what options i have out there for an audio interface that has some decent preamps on it. I used the m audio fast track pro today and am laughably intrigued by how easily a name can sell you a crappy product. I've been duped, can you guys lend me some direction?

dell laptop
pentium dual core t440 @ 220 ghz
4g ram
windows 7 64 bit
DAW sonar 8.5 producers edition
I'll run an old version of pro tools if the hardware is compatible and affordable.

I forgot to mention my budget is dangerously close to the $500 mark, realizing that I'm not gonna get the anything great with that. For example, focusrite, or m audio? tascam? or... thanks for the reply though! I would love to have anything by metric halo if I could afford it.

I would seriously consider the Steinberg MR816X Steinberg MR816 Firewire DSP Studio
For your sort of budget, this is FANTASTIC value for money. Sounds great and you could certainly make a GREAT recording with it.

Just re-reading again, I see that you are on a lap top, so of course you need to make sure that you can use firewire.
