okay so i wont see the input on this until the morning(working nites) but you guys seem to know alot more on this stuff than i. shoulda came here on the monitor thing, but fell good on the deal i got for it. but anyhow lookin' at upgrading speakers. want something that has good mid and highs, with nottoo much overpowering bass. i do play alot of games, and really like it when it sounds like someones walking thru the house steppin on leaves or a fight sceen is about to happen and the fight scene music pulls you in. and then also when i online lurking around i can tune on itunes or mediaplayer and listen to music. so tell me what you guys know or think is a good 5.1 or better system. my computewr room is 10x12 witha few items in it. eventually it will become a full blown office, but right now its a computer/storage room. i try to stick with dell component, but if you know of another source tell me about it. heres two of my top choices for right now.
