PCs are just fine for audio, if you set things up right. It's true, especially of a commercially build PC, they require a bit more tinkering and optimization to squeeze out maximum performance for A/V work.

Macs, generally are less "bulky", out of the gate. But, given your current machine, there is certainly no need to rush out and buy a Mac. Your Sony is fine. Just strip away any un-necessary software and background tasks, and you'll be good to go.

Hardware wise, you are on the right track, M-Audio and Edirol make fine products. Cakewalk will work. But, honestly, I would strongly urge you to look at Steinberg products... They make the BEST audio/MIDI software for PC, hands down.

They have started packages in your price range, such as the Studio Case, which comes with Cubase SE and several VST Instruments...
