So it really depends, if you want it to just sound good where any problems in the audio aren't noticable or if you want the accuracy and to be able to notice the problems.
IMO though, it's best for you to go for a good HIFI system since you want it for games, movies and music. Studio monitors are really more suited to those who want to work with audio and will be mixing and such.

do you have any suggestions? like which hifi system is worth the money...

thank you

I practically don't use the 5.1 feature. Headphones for gaming, music is 2.1, movies are watched on the bigger TV (so the surround wouldn't work).

Get 2.1 speakers.

Buy whatever you want since you haven't at all listened to any of the suggestions you were given. Logitech blows. Stop offering them as possibilities and just buy them.
