What do you think would be the next piece to update?

I have Everything I need to record a descent demo in my low end little project studio.
MacBook pro with logic
Art mp studio mic pre
Akg perception 220
KRK rockit 5
Not the most amazing stuff, but I have come to understand this equipment well and want to start upgrading.
I know most of you have done similar things. What did you find the most useful upgrade? Monitors? Mic pre? Outboard compressors? Mics?

Upgrade whatever is holding you back.

If you're not sure what it is that's holding you back you should probably save your money and practice more. You'll eventually get to a point where something will stick out like a sore thumb.

Only you can know what is best for you.

Chris' post is pretty perfect. Typically, at least in my case, what worked the best for me was just working. Doing recording, mixing, trying new mic placements, and other stuff like that. Honestly, I improved so much more just by doing it more. Not to say that having better equipment doesn't help, but knowing what to do with it and what you've already got helps so much more!

The other big improvement comes with acoustic treatment.

Without a selection of mics and decent acoustic space, all other "improvements" really won't make much difference in the sound of the recording. (unless you have something that really sucks bad in your chain, which you don't).

Better monitors is in 3rd place....
