Well, if price isnt an issue than just go to your local computer store and pick up a set that's a couple hundred bucks. I like my logitech 5.1 set that was only like 60 bucks on Newegg. Originally 80 in stores. Theyre cheapies but goodies.

Audiotrak makes a 7.1 Maya that is inexpensive and has alot of features for those on a budget. You can check them out on Ebay or URL=http://]

Just a 5.1 pci gaming one. Im going to be playing stuff like Half life 2 and Battlefield 2 so it needs to be pretty good but not top of the line. How does my computer look, i am building it my self:

DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Integrated into Chip FSB 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939 Processor

Kingston ValueRAM 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) System Memory x2

SONY Black 16X DVD-ROM 52X CD-R 32X CD-RW 52X CD-ROM 2M Cache IDE Combo Drive

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 SATA NCQ ST3120827AS 120GB 7200 RPM 8M Cache Serial ATA150 Hard Drive

ViewSonic E70F+SB Metallic on Black 17" CRT Monitor 0.25mm diagonal Dot Pitch 15-pin mini D-sub

eVGA 128-P2-N368-TX Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI-Express x16 Video Card

XION Ultimate Engineering XON-001 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 450W Power Supply

ALTEC LANSING VS3151 50 Watts 5.1 Speaker

Is that Dvd drive like a regular one and will play cd's and dvd's?
Also, do you think the 6600GT will last me for at least 6 months and be able to play upcoming games such as Battlefield 2 and others?
