So it looks like I have scored an alesis micro EQ and a boss RRV 10 for $170aud, my questions are

Where do I place these in order with my DS 1?
I hear putting reverb before distortion is paramount. if so why?
do I place the ampworks after the tube preamp, if not where in the chain does it belong?
I have 1 pair of monitors presently, is it advantagous to have two sets, or is that a waste of time?
my UA 25 seems to be picking up interference from the computer but only on the left channel, why? and how do I rectify this annoying mozzie?
