Default A little bit different speaker question...

Ok the thing is I listen to a lot of music on my PC but I do play games too. So I want a 5.1 speaker system that is great with music and also good with games. I may just go with a 2.1 thought so I can get really good speakers, but save some money. So what speakers shoudl I look into and would you guys recommend 2.1 or 5.1? Thanks!

5.1 definately, and if you have the money 7.1. it will come in more handy with games than music.

i used 2.1 for quite awhile and with a good sound card as I have 2.1 still sounded great. a good 7.1 surround soumd is gonna cost you 200+ though. Don't go with cheap, you'll regret it in the end. I used Altec Lansing, the $100 ones (though they only cost me $40 from an aquaintenance)

i bought the altec lansing 621 speakers (2.1ch) and they are awesome, for computers they are very high quality, and are perfect for games or music. although if you have the money get the 641 set as its 4.1ch, the same quality as the 621's in a 4.1 set.
