What to buy / upgrade ???

Hi,
Im in a bit of predicament and would like your experience to assist me as something of a blithering idiot in matters of technology.
I am currently looking to upgrade my recording setup by selling off a load of low range gear and buying 1 or 2 good pieces and was wondering the best plan?
I use cubase sx, protools le and logic (though had to sell my mac, so logic I'll be using in the near future... as its my DAW of choice) and am currently using a digi 002 with a black lion auteur preamp and a valley people 400 pre. Mics are rode k2, sm7, oktava mk219 (modded) and 2x oktava mk012 (modded).
I want to sell the 002 to upgrade to a better interface (maybe rme fireface 800) but was wondering if i could use the superior bits of the rme with my mbox when having to use protools? I dont use protools a lot but sometimes need to in order to move projects between studios. Is this a valid idea... will it work or am I deluded?
I'll be mainly recording guitar / vox / some percussion.
Any advice about best gear... mainly good interface but any suggestions welcome!!!
BTW I'll have just under $1000, have been offered a fireface for $900

No ProTools with Fireface

ProTools LE will only use Digi hardware. It won't even see the Fireface. That's the main reason I started to use Logic, even though I'm much more comfortable with ProTools.

Insert obligatory Digidesign damnation here.

Thanks for the reply. I am aware of the protools need for specific hardware, which is why i mentioned the mbox. I have an old mbox and was wondering if i could use that in order to use protools but the fireface maybe for its pres and converter... is this crazy talk??
