Voice Over booth

Hi All
I've just started at a new job. The voice over booth, well cupboard, is a decent condenser mike running through an analogue mixing desk, then into M-Audio Firewire 410. From this it runs via Firewire into a mac laptop where we record on SoundTrack pro.

Now basically it sounds crap, and is unreliable. The M-Audio Firewire 410 needs rebooting all the time, there is a lot of hum and hiss on the recording.
Given that I have a modest amount of money to spend, say 5k, what sort of set up should I be looking for?

It needs to be compact and self operated i.e. the artist needs to record their own session to the laptop in the booth.

why are you running anything more than your mic into the 410? it has a pre with phantom power.
