Been searching around and dont really know what's best for the buck. Maybe in the 50 dollar range, give or take. Ideas?

Craigslist always has computer peripherals (sp?) for cheap.

Any certain brands that have bad reps? Altec and Creative labs are all over the place.

Either of those will do nicely. I have these:

Also available in 5.1 (I don't have a 5-channel card so I got the 2.1):

Those 2.1s are all over ebay for about the same price. I have NO idea if I can handle the 5.1 so I'm betting I should not go with them.

I'm betting you're just using motherboard sound, and don't have 5 channels.

Personally I have no use for 5 channels anyway. 2.1 is fine for me. I use my headphones quite a bit anyway.

Do you have a soundcard or built in sound? The majority of soundcards are 2.1 tho so if you have not put money out on a soundcard then you should stick to the ones on ebay to be on the safe side.

Either way..... Logitech makes good stuff.

I got these for $49 (http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-2-Piece-Speakers-Ported-Subwoofer/dp/B0002SQ0A4) at Circuit City on Saturday. They sound excellent!

Go with 2.1's in the $50 or less range. You'll lose all of your quality adding the extra 80,000 speakers for the larger sets.
