Sorry to bother you guys, but I was hoping to get some advice from the forum tech-heads:

Can anyone recommend a good set of computer speakers in the $150 to $200 price range?

Preferably a 3 set system (including sub-woofer) that would be used for music, not PC games.

Thanks for any advice! (and here's to getting that patch soon) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If you want to listen to music you really should get a good conventional amp with speakers and simply connect your computer to it

I have a Rotel amp connected to Mordaunt-Short speakers - excellent sound

Ok here is the deal. Back in 2001 to 2002 the Logitech 560 was the greatest set of 5.1 you could get for a decent price. I bought mine for about 160 dollars. The four speakers were mounted on the wall and I put the Bass box under my desk. Yes, it feels like I am in a real plane. Music fills the room and the whole house for that matter. I am however NEVER to play through the speakers once the wifey is home. In order to preserve domestic peace and a lease on my place I only use the speakers from time to time. A set of Plantronics Headphones have been my poison for the last two years. I tried the USB type but they used up too many resources. In my headphones I can forget the world outside witout disturbing the people around me. This keeps me from being disturbed by the people upstairs too. If you want a kick butt set of speakers I recomend the Logitechs but unless you live alone out in the woods you have better stick with a nice set of headphones and save your money.
