It looks pretty darn good. Use this set of speakers for that top of the line X-Fi soundcard. I'm jealous. I want that soundcard!!!!

These speakers are excellent for watching movies, music, games, etc. THX and DTS certified to go with your high performance soundcard. You will be pleased:

Logitech Z-5500 505 Watts 5.1 Speaker - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121120

The price went way up a little, but worth it.

That speaker linked above is pretty much top of the line you can get for a computer. The sound will blow you away and will match your sound card perfectly. I have an older Audigy2 ZS sound card so you'll probably get better sound than what I'm getting now on my system.
