line 6 pod x3 live and garageband 11

I have a pod x3 live and i am wondering how well this would work as an audio interface when recording with garageband

11. my concerns are compatability, latency, and the overall sound quality of the recording.

1:does a firewire connection yield superior sound quality?

2: what is the most important component of a home studio that yields the best sounding recording? (other than the musicians). Is it the DAW, interface, or plug-ins?

3: can I get away with recording with GB and my line 6 if I outsource my final mixdowns and mastering to someone with much better equipment and experience?

Is this a good question?

You can, in fact, use the GarageBand app on your PC instead and use all its features comfortably. Just follow the easy steps on my guide here: http://droidadda.com/garageband-for-pc/

sorry, i should have been more specific. i know my line 6 does not have firewire. it has usb 2.0 ... but i am trying to decide if i should invest in something with firewire (like the apogee duet) or if it is more important to get a better DAW (like Logic Studio). I will definitely look at those forums. Thanks again.
