Need Speaker/Sound card advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I want to get some 2.1 speakers and a sound card. I'm looking in the $150 and under range for the speakers. Is the Logitech Z-2300 my best bet? I will pretty much be using these speakers for gaming only.

And what would be a good budget sound card that would let the speakers perform their best in gaming?

Thanks!

No, these would not be the best bet.

Your best bet would be a pair of Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers, they're much better than the Logitechs.

And for a sound card I'd get either this or this.

If you're okay with buying refurbished things, I'd get this soundcard.

If you're going to get the ProMedia over the Z-2300, I would not recommend you turn up the volume on the ProMedia too loud, the satellites will break

What do you think are better?

And Ive heard bad and good about the Promedias. What makes them better than the Logitechs?
