M-10's come in black for $140 delivered @ lockwaresystems.com.

I went from a old Klipsch 5.1 to the M-10 and have no regrets.

The hiss noise may not be from the sound card, but possibly from EMI/RFI, "dirty power", or simply the amp may be going bad.

that's if you have enough desk room to keep the sub on top with the other two speakers.

Wait should the sub be on top of the desk? I always though it should be on the floor...

The m10's use a mid-woofer, not a sub-woofer. Therefore, it's best to put on the desk. With that said, they are some of the best 2.1 speakers for the price. I have mine hooked up with everything on my table just fine.

Also, on an unrelated note. Why do you have a 1200w psu for your rig when it uses about 500w of that? Planning on getting 2 more 580's and then some...

It was on sale at the time and I originally intended going SLI and TRI. Never happened unfortunately.

Ah kk, I tend to glance over what other people have and that power supply just stuck out lol. Back on topic, the m10's will serve you nicely with a little cash to spare. It's difficult to compete with the m10's at that price point.

Oh wait, you're commenting on my Future rig, I don't even have that yet. Sorry, my old rig has a 1000W PSU, I forgot I put my future rig up there. Yeah, no, I really do need to change that though. I always try to shoot high and then bring it down without losing performance. But, I'm not going to be building that rig yet, anyway. Since I'm waiting to see what Bulldozer and Ivy Bridge are going to be like.

On the note of speakers, I love the Swan M10s, they do look nice. And I see nothing but great reviews. I wish I could find those bad boys in black, I may have to do a bit of work on them myself if it comes down to it.
