    I was wondering what computer speakers you all think are nice. I know i can hook my computer up to my stereo, but they won't be in the same room so yeah. I might just get a new receiver and just get two speakers for it, I don't really care about the surround sound. I just don't want to spend more than $400 really. And thats about a third of what I plan on spending on this new computer... so yeah. Im on a budget with this one.

    I was thinking that or maybe the Bose system. Just that they are sooo damn tiny, it doesn't seem like much sound could come from them. But oh well, thats how they all are.

    $400US should be enough to get a set of Klipsh Pro Media 5.1's.

    I would rather stick with 2.1 is all. I was just wondering if anyone knew of a really really nice 2.1 setup. I am probally just going to get really really nice seenheiser head phones, and cheaper speakers. I also thought about just a cheap Sony stereo amp and getting cheaper speakers for that. It wouldn't be the best, but not to bad. I dunno, I should proablly wait until I have everything else for my computer to see what I can afford to spend really :p

    I was thinking about that system. I am probaly going to get it or a Bose system, if I get speakers. I might end up with just headphones.

    Oh - I ment to say I want to spend tops of $300, not $400 :p

    The altecs or a bose system? That's like saying....

    I'm looking for a car guys... I've narrowed it down to a Porsche and a school bus. Which one should I get? :ugh:

    Get the Porsche.

    BOSE would be the worse possible choice. Do some research. Everything you think Bose is, is wrong.

    If people want tiny speakers, they get Bose. That's all there is to it.

    That's like trying to make a point saying "some people drive their cars into a lake. That's all there is to it."

    dumbass

    "some people make big mistakes... that's all there is to it..." :greddy:

    It was such a simple concept, I cannot beleive it went over your head. It wasn't supposed to relate to the subject, it was supposed to relate to your reasoning.
