Default Optical Audio Speakers

I am looking for 2.0 or 2.1 speakers for my computer have an input for optical audio (from a ps3) as well as RCA from an xbox 360 and another connection for my computer (Soundblaster X-FI xtremeGamer sound card). I have not found any, does anyone know of some that would meet these specifications. I would prefer they are good speakers as well.

P.S. I believe I need to use optical audio out from the PS3 since I am going to be using an HDMI to DVI cable and since DVI does not have the sound I need to use the optical audio port instead. Is this my only option? It is a MUST that I use DVI.

Thanks in advance.

Do you know that the Xbox 360 also supports Optical out with its Advanced HD cable?

Yeah, but I'm going VGA for the 360 so I'm just using the RCA cables that are on the VGA cable.

they dont make speakers that support optical audio. the optical audio should go to the home theater receiver. but for stereo, just use the stereo out jacks

Well the Logitech Z5500's support Optical, but the reciever is built into the device itself. Some other speaker setups may be like this.
