Have them. Love them. Sure they require assembly, but for the price you cant beat them for under $200.
Lol, I've completely forgotten how to read schematics, so that's a no go .

Well you can always buy a prebuilt crossover. But I understand, buying prebuilt will save you time and they will always look a little nicer. Just be aware that most speaker companies use horrible components but put them in really nice cabinets to make them "sound" good.

Here is another option:

$150 per pair.

I havent heard these, but they are front ported (which will help with bass since they are sitting on your desk).

I have ED car audio in my truck in they rock balls. Food for thought.

Just took a look at those. They only have a 4" woofer. I don't think that's going to quite cut it .

I dunno, maybe I should just take another trip to Best Buy. I hate to buy something audio wise and not listen to it first.

Bear in mind that you're never going to get the pressure bass from ANY bookshelf speaker.

I have a friend who works in the audio electronics business and he was astounded to see how poor quaility crossovers/woofers/tweeters are generally used in the industry. That is why I recommended the parts-express / eD speakers because they make their own components in house and will give you their frequency response curves. But I understand the need to hear them first.

If you want a full range speaker in a small size for your computer room, then I really recommend you get some studio monitors. They have lots on overstock like these Behringers (remember that most monitors are sold individually):

I think guitar center has these in store so you could give them a trial run there (if you dont mind all the bad guitar playing in the background).

I do understand that a bookshelf isn't going to produce accurate LOW bass response. But I would expect it to pick up I'd say ~80Hz and up. I'm kind of leaning more towards 5.25" or 6.5". I found a nice set of Polk Audio's at Best Buy for $105 for the pair. Once I have a few more bucks saved up, I'll go give them a listen. They look pretty decent for the money (on paper at least).
