Bass multi effects software


I'm new to the whole daw thing so forgive my ignorance in my questions. But what I am wanting to do is to setup my windows 7 64bit Dell precision 6400 laptop as a bass effects processor to be used live. I have an m-audio USB interface but that's it. I am wanting people's opinions on what software to use and possibly any additional hardware (like a USB pedal board if there is such a thing). I am really wanting to get back into using effects for my playing and really don't want to go out and re-buy a bunch of pedals or drop $500+ on a rack unit. I figure I have this bad ass laptop (3.5GHz 2xdual core processors (4 cores), 12gigs of Ram not to mention 10k mirrored drives) that I really don't use much so why don't I make this a dedicated multi effects system for my rig? I don't really want to do recording with it just use it to run effects for my bass. Any one got any ideas?

Native Instruments Guitar Rig does bass amp and effects along with guitar. It also comes with a USB pedalboard that functions as your input and output.
