Ok, here's what I would buy without costing an arm and a leg:

Logitech X-530 70 Watts 5.1 Speaker
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121118

Here's a better model but cost more, but within your price range:

Logitech THX Z-5300e 280 Watts RMS 5.1 Speaker
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121121

Yeah, but it isn't true and authentic 5.1 surround sound. It's usually a synthetic intimidation created by some chip or whatnot.

Umm, Logitech make excellent speakers. However, I am slightly fond of Klipsch. Creative are very good though.

Actually, I think BOSE are far too overrated. They are good, but Klipsch beats them. Klipsch use a titanium filler point in the fron tweeters and subshell, making them almost IMPOSSIBLE to blow out and to achieve a much better pitch and frequency range.
