Oh, oops lol. I must have skipped that post; I thought you were still having trouble with the cables and where they go.
Logitech is a very good brand for speakers, they're going to sound awesome on your sound card.

edit; and yeah, the second speakers are awesome, they're a very good alternative to the more expensive z-5500
