I would get the Logitechs. I think they are going to be better for you than that other set. I don't know anything about those Creatives but from the prices and what i know about the Logitechs, go with the 5500s. IMO the Creatives aren't "NICE" like the 5500s.

Get the Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1, I have heard both the z-5500s and the ultra 5.1s, and they just slightly edge out the z-5500s out on sound quality, they have a dual driver sub, and every satellite has a tweeter. The the bass is more impactful, tighter, and more controled than with the z-5500s. Now the average joe who listens to mp3s encoded at 128kbps with the sereo speakers that came with his computer probably won't be able to tell the difference between the two sets, but the Ultra 5.1 is just ever so slightly better, and as I stated above, I have owned both sets, and I like the ultra 5.1s better.

btw,
never get creative speakers, they suck.

if u really care about the audio and speakers, go to some pro audio forum site.
im a professional recording engineer so i can tell u about this...
im not 100% sure how serious u r about this...but for ur budget u only can get some computer speakers which is not good at all for music. if u r serious about sound for video game, then it should be just fine. so if u r really serious about getting speakers that works for both music and game sound, just PM me. but its gonna be over ur budgets for sure.
