    what 5.1 speakers?

    HI, just got myself an Creative X-FI music card and my current seakers just aint good enough.

    Can anyone recommend me a quality set of 5.1 speakers for £100 or less for playing games and music.

    thanks

    Edit: Sorry I'm a numpty!

    Edit agian these are nice for the cash and would leave you enough to pick up the trust 5.1 Headphones that have thier own little amp thingy to bypass and go to the speakers also

    i can recommend the logitech range of speakers.

    My old z640's were excellent and these Z5500's leave me speechless at times. The replacement for the z640's the X-530's are meant to be pretty good too.

    Another vote for the Z640's from me. For the money they cant be beat. You can pick em up for nothing these days.

    CoolerMaster ftw!!!

    Absolutely stay away from Trust. They are used by low-end OEMs.

    Another vote for Logitech here. Creative Gigaworks (not cheaper models) are OK (but over budget) and the Klipsch are similar (if you can get hold of them).
