    RME Fireface 800 is great.  (Five stars.) An Apogee Duet for less money and also mobility. Both brands are superb.

    The original Apogee Duet is also five stars but has been replaced by the Apogee Duet 2 ($595.00).

    The original Apogee sells for $250.00+ used.

    That's all you need plus maybe a good amp/effects modeling program for your DAW.  For the moment you can get by with the effects in Live.

    There are a lot of possibilities. If you want to go for a cheap solution, check out the Line6 POD Studio GX: http://line6.com/podstudiogx/record.html

    Works good for me.

    I prefer NI Guitar Rig and Rigkontrol.

    The Software (as a plugin) sounds way better than Lives´Amp;

    The Rig Kontrol can be used as a soundcard and footcontrol either.

    I'm a big fan of MOTU audio interfaces. I have a MOTU-828 as well as an ultralight. Both work well for guitars / microphones.
