I am in major need of a computer interface. Right now all I have to record is a 4 track cassette porta-studio. This is like 80 bucks, and ships with Cubase LE. http://www.music123.com/Lexicon-Alpha-USB-Desktop-Recording-Studio-245507-i1126259.Music123

It's not outstanding but it will work and is affordable. The downside is only one mic input and a USB 1.1 connection.

If you can, try to get an EMU 0202 USB as it has a faster USB2.0 connection and also comes with a bunch of different software packs.
