I have a lesser model of Logitechs and theyre pretty good. For PC Speakers, I'd stick to Creative or Logitech.

Yeah, I'd like to hear what people say about 7.1

My bet is that it can't sound THAT much better than 5.1..

I'm sure there is some difference, albeit a small one. The thing for me is having so many darned speakers around the room. I hate having wires running all over the place so I limited it to 5.1 for me.

If youre just gaming, I'd say 5.1 is plenty. 7.1 is prolly better for movies.

I'd go with the above. 7.1 isn't really computer speakers. Imagine trying to place all those speakers around your computer in a way that they would actually sound good. It would be nice though for the living room.

There are a couple of good speaker companies out there. Logitech normally gets recommended because theirs is just as good as everyone else's at a much cheaper price.
