Advice on 5.1 Speaker set up for PC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i am currently in the market to build my own 5.1 speaker set up. I want something that will sound great for both Gaming/Music/Movies.

The games can range from anything current (BC2 to Crysis/Warhead/2) most of these games currently sound fine with my current Logitech 5.1 setup but i just want to get more out of my sound system. Current music is varied between Techno/Hip Hop & Rock.

My plan for my system is to eventually go 3 x 32inch screens in Ifinity for gaming. So i would like a sound system to go well with it and look high tech.

The current budget i would say anything between $600 to $900 .. If i have to go a bit more for a good quality setup then so be it. Im just looking for suggestions not be swayed over to 2.1 setups as that is not what i want since is the my main mean of watching movies in my house as well .. other tv's are used by other family members so i do not want to be bothered when watching my movies.

You would require a receiver to build such as system or different amps.
Perhaps starting with a good 5.1 receiver and a set of bookshelf speakers -to stay within your budget would be a good idea. This way you can add more speakers and subwoofer in your own time.

Just make sure the receiver you get has full analog inputs for surround sound.

Which receiver and bookshelf speakers would you recommend to start off with?
