Default Upgrade from M-Audio Fast Track Pro audio interface.

Hello for the past few years I have been using Pro Tools connected to an M-Audio Fast Track Pro and a variety of microphones.

I would now like to take things a bit more seriously.
I have recently acquired some very good mics, (Neumann TLM 103 and Neumann KM 185 Stereo Set) and would like to make sure I am doing these justices with my interface).

Can you please give me your opinion on whether I should upgrade the Fast Track Pro, and if so what would you recommend? (N.B I will be using a Mac Book Pro with Mountain Lion will also be upgrading my version of Pro Tools)

Also, in addition to (or maybe instead of?) upgrading the interface, should I be looking at purchasing an independent pre amp. If so can you recommend pre amps that would work well with these mics for mainly acoustic music?

I know these kind of generic questions annoy some people here, but we all have to start somewhere and this is all a gradual process. At the minute I am slowly looking to build a reasonable quality, multipurpose project studio. Once up and running I will then be able to build up my experience and knowledge to understand the subtle differences of pairing different mics and pre amps etc. But as it stands any advice you can provide for general ‘all rounder’ mid range equipment would be much appreciated!
