I'm tired of using headphones all of the time for my PC, so I'm getting some speakers so I can use them for casual gaming sessions (like 20 minute Chivalry spurts, or long RTS sessions).

I want some recommendations for 2.1 speaker systems under $100.

I'm avoiding the Logitech systems (or any other brands) that have a 360 degree sound driver feature as I'm assuming it would annoy me.

The speaker system must be analog too.

Edit - I'm going to wait a few more weeks and get something in a higher price range.

Sometimes Bestbuy sells the Promedia 2.1 on sale for $99.
I've actually seen that recommended in many other threads on other forums.
Before you responded I actually decided to get either the Kilpsch's or this

Personally. I would still go for the Klipsch.
I think I paid about $90 for my used ProMedia 2.1.

Yup, I've decided to go with those.

I can manage $140 for a new system.

Thanks.

Good choice. My Klipsch Promedias gave out a few months ago but they lasted me (and I bought it used from a member here on OCN) a good 6-7 years.

Finally upgraded but they're awesome for the price

I'm fully confident in this choice

The Klipsch satellites do have fabric covers, correct ?

I agree with others get the ProMedias. I got them for my birthday in January. They still surprise me to this day. I love them.

Unless you feel like you need a subwoofer, I would go with M-Audio or Audioengine personally. Apparently the AV40's are good ( http://www.amazon.com/M-Audio-Studiophile-Active-Monitor-Speakers/dp/B0051WAM64/ref=sr_1_1?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1394735575&sr=1-1&keywords=m-audio+av40 ). I wouldn't go with the AV30 though, I think a 3-inch driver is a bit small.
