Honestly I prefer headsets over speakers. [This] is the next headset I plan on buying.

I currently use a pair of wireless rechargeable Sennheiser's that deliver some great audio and a reasonable price.

If you aren't much of a headset person I'd recommend [this] Logitech setup if you want 5.1. I've used their speakers many times over the years and never once had an issue with quality and you don't spend an arm and a leg.

If you aren't looking for a 5.1 setup and want something smaller I've sold [this] 2.1 setup many times when I worked in sales. They sound fantastic not a ton of wires all over the place like you run into with 5.1 and speaker placement around a computer desk is less of a problem with a 2.1. They do simulate virtual 5.1 which is nice but it's definitely not true 5.1.

Hope that helps some!

i'm not a great fan or digger of speakers, i just simply need them to be hearable (word?) and clean.
i recently bought this headset for when i'm at work, which with their soft ear cover disable all the srround sounds and gives a perfect and clean tunes from my music library.

at home i have this, or the version before, simply speakers which i spent 20€ on. of course they aren't top notch but i just need them for games and movies.

You using onboard sound? If so beware that decent speakers will show your audio hardware up for the crud it may be.
If you've got a separate sound card though, no matter how cheap, I still like speaker sets from Creative. 2.1 are dirt cheap too.

Try to make sure the sub has a headphone jack too so you dont have to rely on your mobo sound for headphones if you use them at any point.

Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, as long as it agrees with mine.
