Default Good sound from X-530s?

I'm looking to purchase some Logitech X-530s on Saturday, and was wondering if I would get better sound quality from them instead of my Creative SBS 2.1 370s that I have at the moment.

Here's a link to their specifications page at Creative:

I don't have a sound card, so I'm wondering if I can use these speakers, and if they will still be reasonably good. I have a DFI Lanparty Ultra-D, and I have the most up-to-date sound drivers.

Would I get good sound out of some X-530s? Or should I just stick with my current speakers? If the X-530s aren't good speakers, can someone recommend some that are as good / better for that price?

Thanks in advance.

All sound card's sound the same. I have a new C-Media sound chipset, and a sound card from 1999. They both sound and act identical. If you need 5.1 CH, then you would need a new card.

Those speakers are very good for the money. I'd recommend getting a 5.1 capable sound card, like SB Live! 5.1, Audigy SE, something cheap like that they cost about $30.

Ok, I don't have any cash, even for a cheap sound card if I buy some speakers. I'll be getting them on Saturday. Thanks guys.
