Ive been looking around at some 5.1 and 2.1 speakers, decided that 5.1 is out since i can't run wires all over the floor. I'd say recently im becoming more and more of an audiophile, after I got an Xfi(with front bay) and HD280s, for my current speakers I have these altec lansings. I looked at z2300s and Promedia 2.1s, which are $100-$150 at most places... So while browsing OCN at school I came up with a compromise to myself.

Would I be able to put together a better sounding setup(receiver sub and 2 satellites) for around $200 bucks?

you get a pair of active studio monitors like the Audioengine A2's or B-stock Mackie MR5 from audioline.

Are a pair of headphones out of the question? You'd get a lot more sound for the money if you're able to jack directly into the front panel.

If you have quality headphones then jacking into the front panel is silly.

You need to go straight from back of card for max quality.
