I agree that would be some good info, along with usage (movies, music, games, ???). But OP did not include that info, so I gave a couple of options.

The Vel is an outstanding sub with an HRT Music Streamer II and a pair of BX8a's for anything. My brother has this set up and music (he 70's to present rock/metal, neph's rap and rock) has crisp, thumping bass. Every one that hears it is impressed. Any fps type game the explosions are bone shaking, and in movies as well. We watched the movie "Black Hawk Down" and when the men are exiting the birds that Vel was amazing. If you have ever "un-hienyed" a gunship the rotors have a certain "WHUP" to the stuccato as they are picking the bird off the lz and you are hitting it. That sound through the Vel was so realistic it made the hair on my neck stand up. I want this same set up and recommend it as the way to go if one does not intend to use their pc as an audiophile machine exclusively. Just my .02...

Yeah I'd second the Dayton SUB 120 on that budget.

Make sure the sub has low level L/R RCA output so you can properly connect the BX5as. Many do not--Polk for instance.
