Well i have been debating on which way to go .Currently im using onboard sound from my 750i xfx board.But i listen to a lot of music and watch movies as well as game.

So this bring's me to my question what would be a better investment a Sound card or some new Speaker's.I am using a Phillips 38watt smart sound solution which has two vocal speakers and a small subb.I use to use a Regent home surrond sytem with 5 speakers and Big sub and driver which sounded Great and Really Cranked.

Im looking mainly to making things louder and Sound better.So what should i do ?

These if you can afford them, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...e&Order=PRICED

Or these if you need cheaper http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121006 ( work great, my buddy cranks them and they sound clear, surprising bass as well )

You will see more gain in speakers as the integrated sound chips these days are good enough for output. Getting a sound card and not new speakers will probably give you a better ( cleaner amplified sound) but not by much and definitely not as noticeable as a new set of speakers.

i was looking on new egg and was looking specifically at this 2 that was in my price range

logitech X-540 70 watt 5.1 speakers
Logitech Z-2300 200 watts RMS 2.1 Speaker System

i just dont know which would be more of a Gain than the phillips 38w 2 channel i have now.It has been awhile since i have fooled with anything audio related but i would assume the 200watt 2.1 would be louder and still provide Good sound

I have the Z 2300 and Asus D1 so that is what i recommend plus the D1 does not need power connector and DX does.. so see if you have a PCI slot free

Logitech speakers aren't very good at any price range. Especially the Z5500's. Just...stay away from them before you get buyers remorse.

If you're looking to spend around $100 get the before mentioned Klipsch Promedia 2.1 set.
