I agree with Nick...If you could find a Monsoon system that would be great. I have a low-end Monsoon system ($99.00) and the sound is fantastic. Looks like PosterBoy is right, Monsoon's computer line doesn't exist anymore so, you may in fact be able to locate some old stock and get a deal. They're powerful speakers with thunderous bass and crisp clarity! I haven't used other types of speakers, but have been quite happy with the Monsoons.
