What to keep, change or sell in my home studio help please

I have built up a small home studio over the past five years and have enjoyed the process although I think that I have probably spent more time thinking and tweaking rather than writing..hence my post.
I have decided that as I am in a small room (a little over 2x3 metres) I am never going to have a good monitoring room or easy/practical recording area ( I need to use this room as my home office each day). I feel that I am not making recording as easy or as much fun as I could, for my level.
Apart from my old bass guitar & combo I have bought the folowing equipment to record general rock songs:

PC - Cubase SX2
Edirol DA2496 sound card
Groove tubes 'The Brick' Preamp.
Lexicon LXP-1 reverb/effects
Alesis M1 active MK2 monitors
SM57 Mic
Groove Tubes GT67 Valve Mic
Rickenbacker bass + 100w Marshall combo amp (20 years old now)
Yamaha Electric + 15w Laney Amp
Korg AX100G guitar floor effects processor
Evolution Midi keyboard
UAD-1 DSP card
Korg Legacy Collection soft synth
FM7 soft synth

I want to sell some of this gear and buy some new to simplify to make recording more efficient.

1. I am tired of looking at soft synths on screen so I am selling these to replace with one VA synth by korg or Alesis so that I can get the hands-on-synth rather than hands-on-mouse experience.
2. Sell my GT67 mic because I don't think I will ever get the best out of it and just use my SM57 for vocals and amp duties.
3. Sell my Groove TUbes 'The Brick' preamp which I am not getting the most out of and replace it with the more versitile TwinTrak pro (and I am sure the preamps will be good enough for my perposes).

I thought I would run my idea past some experienced recordists to get some views.
