Suggestions for PC speakers?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for something between $50 and $100 with decent quality. I don't want anything cheap but nothing over the top. I'm usually a headphone kind of guy but have decided to give that a rest.

Any suggestions?

Prefer Canadian websites as I am Canadian

newegg.ca or eBay.ca etc wherever the best deal is at.


Oh and I have onboard sound from a p8p67 WS Revolution Mobo.

I have the Edifier S330D. Not too much bass, but they do have a very nice clean sound to them.
Might be a little more than $100, but very worth the price.
Cheapest I've seen in Canada.
Edifier S330D 2.1 $112

On a real note, stray from the x530's, I own a pair and don't even use the 5.1, got them years ago as a present. My soundcard gave them a little more life but I'm dying to replace them with something that actually might compliment the new card.

Go with the monitor/bookshelf suggestions
