Need help with new gear setup

I am recording classical guitar and violin in my home with a decent room. I have a budget of $4000 and need to get mics, pres and converters. I know that's near nothing to put a setup together, but I need to know where to put the money. I want 4 channels.
I've considered these options...
1. Focusrite 428 w/ A/D card
RME pci card
