line 6 Flextone III or Hayden peacemaker is a decent tube amp but you won't get any effects

$2000 isnt going to get you an amazing amp and versatility. Open your budget up another $500 or so and look on ebay. You might be able to find a Mesa Mark IV for $2500 or less but i doubt that very much.

Keep your toneport. Its good and doesn't need replacing.

If not you can get a Boss BR-600 for $680 and a Shure SM57 for $250 ish.

Use your leftover $1000 or so and look for a good amp. Your not going to get amazing versatility for that price unless you go for a flextone which i dont recommend on your budget.

Ideal setup.
Guitar > $1500 specialized amp (Not all out versatility) > SM57 > toneport > computer.
Use the leftover money on some good recording software. Tracktion is really good and is very easy to use. It comes with a bunch of drum loops, bass loops guitar loops etc etc for you to use in recording.
For those who care.

Buy a Digitech GNX4 - Answer to all your problems - Google it.
It has an 8 track recorder, everything is excellent and you won't need to buy a new amp! It retails for $1399 but you could con your local music shop for doing it for around $1k i daresay. Just give it a shot trust me.
I have my GNX4 plugged into my RG75G2 amp at the moment, it works a charm. (I sold my stack) haha.

I'd be lost without my GNX4.
