Default Speakers and/or Headphones?

When I finally build my computer iam going to need some speakers/ and or headset so I can hear and talk...

Could you guys recommend me a speaker/headphone or just a headphone which will output sound and will allow me to talk.

I dont want it to cost a fortune I just want it to work and have decent quality.

These speakers are AMAZING sound quality for the price...I have their 5.1 set big brother and I currently only use the front 2 and middle and its AWESOME with my cheap Audigy SE.
Newegg.com - Logitech X-230 32 watts RMS 2.1 Black Speaker System - OEM

Newegg is having a 9 buck sale right now through a promo code so they can be had for like 40 after shipping which for the quality you cant beat....for a headset these are on sale right 23 bucks plus shipping right now and they are very good for the price..

This headset is currently what I use and it is unmatched for the price. I'm sure there are better ones but that's when you're gonna be paying $50+.

Unmatched? The sennheiser PC 140 at the same price begs to differ lol

I've never been a fan of that particular design when it comes to a headset. I prefer something more like the way that specific plantronics is set up.

I like your speaker and headset selection.
How much does the 5.1 run?
Do you know what the promo code is?

Still the sennheiser offer actually better audio quality since they make SUPERIOR audiophile headphones already. I actually love the design and I would order some right now at that price if I didn't have my mind set on the iCEMAT Siberias.

The X-230's are what you want for speakers man...i don't and can't recommend anything else for the price.
