Ok I am very close to ordering my new gaming pc from ibuypower.com They have cut their AMD setup pricing yet again, so it is a better time than ever to go AM2 to me.
Here it is:

600W PMPO 3 PCS Super Bass Subwoofer Speaker System

I have three questions:
1. Look at everything in there. What do you think about the whole setup in general? Don't suggest Conroe please, in my opinion this deal is very good as it is.
2. Look at the sound card. Does it look pretty neat? I don't think I've ever been on a pc with it's own sound card. I'm assuming this will sound alot better. Does this put out good enough signals to produce rich bass and clear sound?
3. Look at the speakers. All I want is a 2.1 setup because the dimensions of my room are very inconvinient for a 5.1 system. I noticed this says 600 watts PMPO. I googled "PMPO" and it said that the PMPO number is the amount of watts that is capable of being produced under perfect conditions. This is nearly impossible to do. Do you think these speakers will be any good anyway? How about bass-wise?
As you can tell, I am alot more concerned about #3 than I am about the other two lol. I'm a sound freak. In fact, before the AMD systems dropped like a rock, I was thinking about just getting a powerful subwoofer system for my truck. But now I want a pc again. So I might as well full fill my thirst for good sound and lots of bass while I'm at it.
