Would these be a good combination for a home studio?

Im switching over from using a Korg D1200 to using my computer to record now. I've been looking at computer software and interfaces and this is what ive come up with. Since i don't have a Mac and they are extremely expensive (well the powerbook G4 at least) i decided that i might get Sonar 3, the Produce edition. The interface i've been looking at is the Motu 828mkII. Please let me know soon if anyone knows anything about either one of these.

I'm not to familiar with all this computer recording stuff, so I would really appreciate it if someone explained all this soundcard and interface stuff. Would this work.......... Playing through my marshall and miking it with an SM57 going into the Motu 828mkII interface, then into my PC through a fire wire connection i believe it is. Then from there record using the Sonar 3 Producer edition. ?????

Not sure about the Motu I'm afraid but I've been using Sonar for a few years now and I can highly recommend it.

You should be able to assign each of the Motus IOs to a channel in Sonar and get 20 tracks of audio.

I manage fine at the moment with just stereo IO, but I've been considering purchasing something with a few more inputs for a while now so let me know how you get on with it.
