Line6 just sound like cool guitar effects to get different sounds for recording. A usb interface is enough for recording. You do need a feature on your usb interface in order to run a condenser mic but I forget what it's called.

What is the M-Audio you have hanging around? It might be just the ticket.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

How many inputs will you need? I had a firefly 302 usb interface which was pretty good and didn't kill my bank balance. You can pick them up on ebay for between 30-100 quid.
