A good 2.1 speaker system then would suffice.

Creative ones tend to be good, logitech speakers are also gaining in popularity. I'll have to do research on models and such

A 2.1 system would also only need one port so this is fine.

a 2.1 is a subwoofer and a left and right speaker, hence the .1. There are many good ones out there so at least you have a choice. Just look at reviews of some :)

Yep. You couldn't buy a 4.1 system for example, as you'd need another port.

a 2.1 system will do just fine though for a hi-fi replacement. Just make sure you get one that has good midrange/low range swap, clear sound, and the low range can get to around 20-45hz (20 is supposed to be as low as we can hear, though I haven't seen many subs capable of that)

It's okay, this is what were here for.

Hmm... I haven't heard of that company either, and that info isn't very detailed. They've just called them Sexy to suggest that they are, and not the make hehe, there actaully HiPoint speakers, but i haven't heard of these either.
The wattages seem ample, but doesn't give you any ranges, or the quality of the speakers, though to provide a tweeter and a midrange unit on each speaker can't be too bad.

I've tried looking them up, and can't find any info
