I had them until I got my Klipsch 2.1 which I would highly recommend if you have around 170 bucks. I still have my X-540's though, and depending on where you live I would sell them to you for around 40 bucks. PM if you're interested.

Yeah, if you really want a worthy upgrade after 2 years you should spend a lot more.

I love them, and I'm fairly sure you can't get much better without going all in with an amp and all that. Could be wrong though.

The 540's are by no means bad speakers. They're not great or amazing though. They will shine very well for 5.1 on the cheap. They sound decent with eq'ing at mid volume. They aren't worth 90 bucks, but for the 60 I payed for mine, they were well worth it. That being said, when I'm not watching a movie, my m50's or my a700's are practically glued to my head.
I've seen quite a few good deals on swan m-10's and a few other good 2.1 speaker systems. Look around for those, they'll give you good sound on a budget. If you're set of 5.1, look around a bit and you can get the x540's or their new successor quite cheaply. Don't pay 90 bucks for them.

No, I don't run with an amp. I was just mentioning it as the next logical step, ie amp with bookshelf speakers and a receiver. There are other really high quality 2.1 PC speakers as well.
