You may be dealing with too many suggestions at this point, but I'd  
like to suggest an interface with an external converter. They tend to  
have less noise than an interface with the ADCs/DACs inside the  
computer. Some might suggest this is minimal, but if you can afford  
it, I would find something external. As a Mac guy, I'm more familiar  
with offerings on that side of the fence. However, I personally use  
the M-Audio Delta 1010, and would also suggest looking into the fine  
offerings by RME.
