    What kind of speakers does OT recommend? I think I am going to go 2.1 since I don't have the room for a 5.1 set.

    Suggestions please.

    home theater is the best.


    but you didn't tell us your budget, or use?

    Sorry, gaming that's it...I like to use headphones when I game but it is always nice to have a decent set of speakers.

    Budget = ~$75 including shipping.

    just buy a decent pair of headphones. they are better for gaming and any set of speakers for that price won't sound as good as a set of headphones or the price

    agreed. Headphones and a good headphone amp.

    Otherwise save the money for a home theater setup, and use that for your computer (I do, and it's great)

    I already have a good pair of headphones, but I do need a decent pair of speakers. Like I said it doesn't have to be an amazing set, just something I can use if I don't want to use my headphones, or I am browsing the internet, etc...I don't want to have to wear headphones everytime I am on my computer.

    Thanks.

    yup, ill agree w/ jollyogre. I have a nice HT reciever and some nice bookshelf speakers and sub hooked up to my audigy soundcard, million times better than any speaker set you can buy

    agreed. a nice reciever and bookshelf speakers with a sub give you much more versatility than 'computer speakers' you can replace components and upgrades speakers as you see fit. get ones sized for your room, etc. but you're not going to get a home theater system for $75, so go with headphones.
