Default Need advise on new Gaming speakers and Chair

Heres the deal fellas. I need some new speakers for under 150.00 and a new chair for a 175.00. The cheaper the better for both, but i want the best quality for my budget. I'm a pretty extreme gamer, probably spending about 60 hours a week on my pc alone, so the chair I have is pretty devistated, and i just sold my old pc, so I lost my speakers. Advice please! My research has turned up that Logitech has good speakers, i just dont know which ones to go with. I have no clue on the chair. Help please.

logitech z-2300's

for a chair go to staples and sit in every one until you find one you like.

Now answer me this; you spend 60 hours a week playing games and stuff? Now a typical person work only 40 hours in a week. With that you are telling me that you spend more that 8 hours every day playing computer games?

I have a chair similar to the one KBlair has. Any good office chair like that will work fantastic.

Lol i have both of those. The speakers really are sweet they can really jam. The chair is comfy but after a while it starts going flat but still its a really good chair.

I get my chairs from Boeing surplus. Their MSRP is about $140-$250 and I pick them up for about $5-$10 and there more or less brand new. If you live near a Boeing surplus store I recommend checking it out.

Ya you are entitled to do whatever you want so get those Klipsch 2.1 speakers so you can jam harder and game harder

Get either Klipsch Promedia 2.1 or Logitec z2300. They will both rock.
