Wow. Guys, he's already bought the system so stop telling him what to get. He's not gonna return that stuff just cuz a bunch of people, half of whom don't know what they're talking about, told him to return it.

As for Ste...he needs to be muted. Seriously, he's giving crap advice to people.

still undecided about speakers/headset yet ...
Cool then. Since you're still undecided about the sound system, I still say to go with a good headset. If you choose to go with the headset, I recommend this one.

Maybe you should read before you post because he only spent 4800 after shipping and taxes.

I haven't played it, but yea, from what I've seen of it, I want to play it. Looks really interesting.

BUT, get BF2 and max it out. Like 1600x1200, all high settings wih 4x anti aliasing, lol or w/e the max is. Then take pics and post em here :classic:

Hint: In most new games, pressing Prt Scn automatically takes a screenshot.

Oh, forgot, you just ordered it...lol...bummer.
