I'm on the verge of purchasing the following:


and M-Audio AV40s.

I don't play anywhere these days but by my computer on guitar rig 5 using a horrible £5 USB Alesis interface and through headphones. And I'm not in a position to dish out any great deal of money.

AV40s generally get a lot of praise for their price, but couldn't find much about the Focusrite preamp. Anybody know if it's any good?

Also, will I be able to play youtube through the AV40s via the soundcard at the same time as playing guitar rig 5 through the preamp?

Thanks for the help in advance, pretty much wasted my only day off this week researching and deliberating
