Well, my (seemingly crappy) Dell 5650 5.1 speakers blew out a few weeks ago only 7 days after the warranty was up, and now I am left with a nice gaming computer, a few games, and $120 of debt to my parents with no speakers to game with. So for my birthday, June 14th, I was hoping to get a Sony SDM-HS75P/S 17 inch LCD monitor (has X-BRITE), and a pair of crappy (or atleast cheap) 5.1 speakers. Are there any out there for less than $100 that will sound good for music/gaming and wont blow out 7 days after the warranty ends?

Well, can you put alot of work into them? You can buy a cheap 5.1 amp off of ebay for $50 then find some old speakers that need some stuff repaired. It would be about $50 for parts, more if the speakers are big. I did a set of 15inch speakers for about $120, you can't buy them in stores for that much. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16836113142 if you don't want to mess around, only $70 shipped.

The ones you have may be great, but I wasn't looking forward to the pair I had picked out. They were analog, 70 watts, and looked very cheeply made.

Get the altec's. They are from a company that makes only audio equipment(speakers, headphones) and they have been around for a long time.
