Smile Audio Interface Suggestions >>>>Updated<<<<

Hello all,
I'm looking for input on what are the most popular audio interface devices being used out there.
I am considering a LINE 6 POD Studio UX2, but it seems "guitar centric" if such a word exists.
I am new to home audio recording and would definately consider myself an amatuer. Even so, I am generally very technically competent with computers. I would like to spend $100 - $300 for the device and wonder whether a USB or Firewire interface is better. I have both. I'll be recording a variety of instruments and vocals. One notable item is a set of Roland electronic drums with a midi interface.
Also, "I'm a PC"
I would be grateful for your input, even if it is only to list the device you use.
Thanks all.
Chief Minnechuk

Thanks to all who offered suggestions and insights in my quest for an Audio Interface. Just exploring your various suggestions gave me a real education.

Today I purchased an Alesis IO14 Audio Interface for $117.00 on ebay. Its got a Firewire Interface, MIDI, and a couple of inputs. It also has a slew of features that I don't yet fully understand. Unfortunately, it's not a unit that anyone suggested here in the forum. Instead, my choice is the fruit of the various avenues I explored as a result of your suggestions. I just hope it's not a piece of junk - someone tell me it's not junk.

Anyway... I appreciate all of your input. Quincy Jones... look out.
Thanks all.

Chief Minnechuk.
