Lightbulb i wanna uber sound system.

Not really into mixing n video editing and stuff like that, but i really want a huge-sweet media library with boss sound and speakers around my room.

was wonderin if id need a sound card? How much would one cost (under 50 bucks would be ideal, but if u know of a pimp one for 51, dont let that stop u from posting) And finally some good low budget speakers (ill search for these now but if u know of any, id be nice to have em in same thread)

sorry "pimp dog" but you arent going to get a "uber" sound system on a 51 dollar sound card and low budget speaker. :/
