(Change of plans) 2.1 system/sound card & more

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just bought some M-Audio AV40 MkII speakers off amazon and plan on pairing it with a Polk PSW10 sub (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882290034) and connecting both to a sound card through analog connection. I also plan on connecting a pair of Astro a40s through optical to the sound card for specific games and for when surround sound is needed.
The sound card I'm currently looking at is the HT | OMEGA CLARO Plus+ (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829271003) to replace my on-board creative card and I was wondering if anyone had any input on this card or if I should be looking at a cheaper or different card.


So some stuff has changed...after reading through some posts on 2.1 setups and hearing that the M-Audio AV40s don't have the best build quality I plan on taking the hit and paying return shipping to amazon. So now I'am more or less back to square one, from the threads I've read I seem to be looking more for a set of Passive speakers, an amp, a great sub, and a new sound card. This is the stuff I've been looking at:

Sound card: HT Omega Claro plus+ (still the same)

Speakers: Polk Audio Monitor40 Series II (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882290202)

Subwoofer: Polk Audio PSW10 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882290034)
or
Dayton SUB-100 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=300-633)

Amp: Dayton DTA-100a Amp ( )

Edit: decided I would just pick up a pair of Logitech speakers probably the Z623 and invest the rest of the cash in some SSDs, thank for your suggestion on the sound card NKrader.
