Looking at purchasing a computer speaker system. I can't really decide I want a 5.1 or just a 2.1 though. I understand for gaming the 5.1's would be good but I almost never watch movies on my PC, but I do play my xbox on my monitor and my ghetto setup I have going on now doesn't really cut it. For a 2.1 system I have been looking at the logitech Z-2300. If I got a 5.1 I am stuck between the Z-5500 and the G51.
I like a lot of bass without it being too muddy. From some of the youtube vids I watched they all sounded pretty muddy (could be their shit ass cameras but still.) Heres the questions I need answered.
Pretty much I want to be able to impregnate all kittens within a 20 mile radius and be able to make not only my self go deaf when I get flashed in CSS, but also my family with out the bass sounding like shit. Will these do it?
Is there any other brands besides Creative (eww imo) and logitech out there for computer speakers that I should look at?
Should I look into a new sound card? I have a creative Audigy 2 ZS with "homebrew"
drivers that makes it like an X-Fi... I guess, but they are sorta buggy plus another problem mentioned in the next question
Is optical better than just using the 6 channel direct jacks? I plan on using optical for my xbox fo sho but should I upgrade my sound card for optical through my PC?
