Default need help choosing speakers

What do you think about crative GigaWorks S750 ? http://www.creative.com/products/pro...3&product=9306 Those speakers seem to be ok but i'm not sure, what do you think about the price?
Will those speakers work fine with this sound blaster? http://www.creative.com/products/pro...&product=14066

wow those are expensive 400 bucks... i say you get the z5500's, yes they sound incredibly clear, and its a 10 inch subwoofer!!! it sounds way better than my z5300's, and, yes they would work with that sound card, that would make it sound all the better... and with the money you saved on speakers, you could get the x-fi platinum

Well yes, they are expensive but if they are so good maybe i'll get them, you got a link for the speakers you recommend? Is there a big difference between them?
Thanks for helping.
