Default Recording

Alright, I have a $500.00 budget and wish to record my drums at home with good quality. I already have the mics. I've tried researching this topic, but just cant quite grasp it for some reason. I have only recorded in the studio previously. Could someone throw some set-up ideas at me that will work. I thought I could grab a Behringer X2222 and run my mics through it and into my computer and record/edit with Cubase or what ever. Problem is, I want individual control of each 8 mics, and I believe it only has 2 outputs. Im at a loss. Someone at the music store in my area threw the idea of a Zoom R24 at me, but it doesnt look durable at all. i dont know. Thanks in advance for any and all help offered.

I record my drums and my band into an 8 channel Presonus Firepod, then into the firewire port of my laptop into Pro Tools. This gives me individual control of each input.

Anything that I know of that is in the price range that you are looking in is only going to send two channels into the computer.
You will have to mix your drums outside of yore computer.
At least that is what I know to be true.

Any thoughts on the Zoom R24? Is it worth the money?

The Zoom's seem to do a pretty good job. I have heard many recordings from them.
They are OK and not spectacular.

Expensive software like Pro Tools combined with a high end firewire mixer is what really makes a recording come to life.

I really want to give the PreSonus FireStudio Project (FS Project) a shot because Ive heard some nice recordings done with this unit, BUT my laptop doesnt have a firewire inlet of course.......

No PC card slot, I presume? I have an old Firepod which works well, but I've seen some suggestions for some of the USB TASCAM units like this: http://tascam.com/product/us-2000
