Default M box 2 pro or Mbox 3 usb ?

Greetings all,
I need some advice. I have never used any form of software to record but i am making the transition and decided to go with pro tools . I am planning on buying through a third party ( everything is legit,Nothing stolen or shady. It's just friendlier on my budget). The choice is either the M box 2 pro w/ pt 7.4, which I thought to go with being I heard good things about this box(fire wire, little to no latency) and then just upgrade to pt 8 or the M box 3 -not pro just usb- but comes with pt 8. Which would you suggest I go with ? also my laptop runs on Windows 7 So wont that be a problem if i go w/ the pt 7.4 unit Then try to upgrade or cross grade( not sure if it's the same thing) to PT 8? Thanks. Would really appreciate some input.

MBox Gen 3. Might as well be future proof.
