For the money definitely! Also u can always hit a proper sub and add that into the mix when u have more $$ Nah it's just a matter of matching +/- and not difficult at all going passive speakers + amp - 3.5mm-RCA from amp to mobo/sound card headphone jack and it's all good wee~

Polk makes some good budget subs. A little higher then that, the Daytons are very often recommended.

In case you don't realize, you don't need anything fancy to hook up audio to your PC, just this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/3-Ft-iPod-Compat...item3369e02f13

You probably have some sort of stereo in your room already that can plug right in to your computer.
